Econogy – Orientation, know-how and transparency

Econogy Logo

"Econogy" stands for all sustainability activities of Messe Frankfurt's Texpertise Network across international trade fairs and provides orientation. The term "Econogy" combines economy and ecology in one word and shows how decisive sustainability is today for the economic success of a company: Sustainability is increasingly becoming an integral part of all entrepreneurial thinking and action. The creative inspiration for the term "Econogy" is the famous quote by David Suzuki, Canadian biologist, publicist and winner of the Alternative Nobel Prize.*

*"We've got to put the 'eco' back into economics." Speech of David Suzuki, 31.10.2008, West Coast Green Conference, San José, California
