Corporate Social Responsibility
At AIM Group we understand the importance of the part we play in creating a more sustainable future for the Earth.
At AIM Group we understand the importance of having a part to play in creating a more sustainable future for the Earth. That is why we have embraced practices in our daily work focusing on the 3 pillars of sustainability – people, planet, and profit. This requires the careful consideration and selection of options that are non-disruptive to clients.
OUR PHILOSOPHY AND APPROACH
We strive to do our business according to the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact. The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
- We support our clients in their overall approach towards sustainability at events – going paperless; optimizing food quantities and donate surplus food; being more efficient in the use of materials and recycling; improving transportation means for events; etc - and we indentify the best ways to leaving a legacy to the local communities after the events.
- We support mainstream charitable organisations.
- We support the planning and organisation of charitable events – from concept to execution, with pro-bono work.
FOR THE INDUSTRY
AIM Group has the expertise to provide the best solutions in sustainable event management. Several of our team members are active contributors to the field – by their work on new industry standards such as ISO 20121, as directors of industry associations and through contributions to academic and industry literature.
The earth is not only the place where we work it’s the place where we live.
That’s why we consider it our first client.
Doing something for its future – for our future – is what we consider
a purpose and a real commitment.

Rehab Centre Burundi
Rehabilitation Centre “Enzo Buongiorno” in Bubanza, Burundi
AIM Group launched and continues to support a Rehabilitation Centre in the Bubanza province, Burundi, which is named after AIM Group founder, Enzo Buongiorno. The centre helps people with physical disabilities and those suffering from post-traumatic treatment and post-surgical rehabilitation. Our company has teamed up on this project together with the International Foundation of Doctors for Central Africa (FIMAC). During our last mission to Burundi, in April 2018, we followed the developments of the local physiotherapy team who deal with the rehabilitation of children. Since its opening in 2016, the centre has treated more than 800 patients, half of them under 5 years old.
IAPCO Plastics Pledge: reducing single-use plastic
Environmental sustainability is a major challenge nowadays in every aspect of our lives, but in particular for businesses. AIM Group considers it crucial to deal with this issue. We are promoting a series of activities under the umbrella of the IAPCO – International Association of Professional Congress Organisers - CSR campaign: Not just a drop in the ocean. In fact, in 2018 we signed the IAPCO Plastics Pledge which involves taking concrete actions to rid the Meetings Industry of single-use plastic
Food For Good - no more wasted food at events
We support the ‘Food For Good’ programme. The aim of this programme is to recover surplus food at the end of a convention lunch or dinner and deliver it to local charitable organisations (family homes, soup kitchens and refugee centres) thereby reducing the event’s environmental impact and supporting local communities. Since we got involved, the project has donated 7,000 meals, 200 kilos of fruit and 500 water bottles.
Save the Children
Save the Children
For many years, AIM Group has been supporting children through the “Save The Children” adoption program. Every child deserves a strong start, a chance for a successful future, but too many children are not getting the opportunity to reach their full potential. We do our part and help children in the Save the Children programmes in El Salvador and in Uganda.
Global Charity Campaigns - United Against Malaria
AIM Group constantly supports global charity campaings. For example we supported Africa with their fight against malaria. We purchased thousands of handmade bracelets created by United Against Malaria, an alliance of various organisations, which helps the prevention and treatment of malaria across the African continent. The proceeds go towards providing life-saving mosquito nets, treatments in malaria-endemic regions as well as providing wages for the makers of the bracelets. In the same way, AIM Group also joins other CSR global projects including:
- “Little Sun” which provides sustainable energy for people without electricity,
- “Sea Points’ Water” for access to safe drinking water, and
- “Reach for a Dream” helping children with life-threatening illnesses.
