Sustainability in our client projects.


As designers, we are becoming ever more responsible for how our work impacts the environment. So, wherever and whenever possible, sustainability in our projects is a priority.

Fundamentally, we help them consider the longevity of their manufactured design across at least one year’s show activities as a minimum, and ideally across a three year programme. Since 2017, working in close partnership with our valued clients, we have progressively:

– increased the specification of sustainable materials in client projects,

– maximised the reuse of post-event materials on other future planned projects and

– designed projects in a modular way to ensure that produced elements can be reconfigured and used at future events.

Sustainability in projects

Following are links to two stories that outline our sustainable endeavours within client projects:

Exhibition stand for Dataiku at Big Data LDN, London

This project featured the use of sustainable materials including; recycled plastics for counter surfaces and FSC timber to repurpose old elements from the previous year’s stand that would have been disposed of but were stored and reclad including the signature branded archway structure and other unitary that was repurposed. Awarded SILVER by the World Exhibition Stand Awards in the category Best Sustainable Stand. Read and see more here.



Sustainable bar for event space at Natural History Museum in Basel, Switzerland

Originally conceived and installed in 2021, this temporary pop-up Bar space has remained open to the present day. Fulfilling its purpose and sustainability credentials, the project showcases that we don’t need to use new materials to create a considered aesthetically pleasing designed space as the bar was produced almost exclusively with reused and up cycled materials.

Our future

Companies recognise the benefits to their brand of; investing in sustainable design, committing to sustainability policies and creating environmentally friendly spaces, environments and experiences that reduce their impact on the environment. Undoubtedly, there is a pressing need for clients to ensure they rigorously act on sustainability policies, and take responsibility for their annual events programmes and the impact these have year in year out on the environment.

We are very aware of how wasteful the design industry is regarding the exhibitions and events sectors, and witness the problems first hand. In response to this, we are on a journey to develop a fully sustainable and carbon neutral service as our long term objective.

The offer we are developing will deliver high-end custom-designed, built, installed, dismantled, stored and repurposed spaces to support the need for sustainable solutions as consumer shows and events have re-emerged around the world post-Covid.

By partnering with the right contractors, and through every stage in our process and supply chain, we fully support clients that see they must ‘act on sustainability’ by offering them a clear choice and a full service that takes our collective responsibility to looking after the environment so much further.

Supporting environmental initiatives

Outside of client projects, UNLTD_XYZ has shown its support as a ‘Climate Positive Workforce’ member of Ecologi in its mission to plant trees & fund the world’s best climate crisis solutions. And before the pandemic closed down the exhibitions and events industry, a proportion of year end profits were donated to the Parley Foundation to acknowledge and support their important work and our responsibility in helping to move our industry towards a sustainable future.
