FG Design Group, pioneer of eco-design

Concept of the 5Rs of eco-design
Concept of the 5Rs of eco-design

From 2007, the FG Design Group has focused on the eco-design of its event stands until it has become a standard, even a state of mind!

In 2008, the FG Design Group was partner of 1er Sustainable Planet fair and made the stand of the PSA Peugeot-Citroën group, for which the 1er prize in the Eco-Design category as part of the FFM2E Ephemeral Trophies was awarded to him.

At that time, PSA Peugeot-Citroën was the inventor of the diesel particulate filter and was promoting its low CO2 emission vehicles. He wanted an environmental approach in all his approaches and he called on the FG Design Group. The stand created was built on a floor of recycled tire granules, dyed in the mass, eco-designed materials and paper signs; PVC was banned from signage, which was itself printed with eco-sustainable processes, etc.

This customer's will pushed us to commit to a more ethical voice and from there came the eco-design approach for the group's stands.

Awarded again in 2014 (Nord Pas de Calais Region CRCI stand) then in 2019 (Mayors and Local Authorities Fair for the construction of the Véolia Environnement stand), the process of creating 98% reusable stands was underway. It was no longer just a question of designing with environmentally friendly materials, but also of reusing, recycling, repairing and even upcycling!

In 2012, it enabled us to design a 100% eco-designed Eco-Event for the responsible investment brand of BPCE “Mirova”.

This included the choice of the location of the event as close as possible to the client's premises (to avoid travel consuming CO2), the transport of materials on carts (Yes Yes 😉); the choice of a floorless exhibition area, reusable partitions, visuals produced using eco-sustainable inks and recycled at the end of the event to be transformed, catering with an organic caterer!

In short, a 100% eco-designed event, we know how to do it, just ask 😉
