A day for the future

First sustainability congress by and for companies in the Ruhr region
Essen, July 29, 2022

On September 9, the first sustainability congress of the Forum Nachhaltigkeit Ruhrgebiet - FONARU - will take place at the Stadt- und Tagungshotel Franz in Essen. Here, companies from the entire Ruhr area will come together to work for a liveable region, social awareness and a sustainable entrepreneurial future. As co-founder of FONARU and partner of the event, the full-service digital agency communicode AG is also on site and is voluntarily committed to the success of the congress.

Sustainability is a complex subject area and much more than just a buzzword within a marketing strategy. Companies that deal intensively with the topic quickly realize that while they can pursue their own paths, much more can be achieved in solidarity with others. To make this vision a reality in the Ruhr region, like-minded entrepreneurs and members of the BVMW from the Ruhr region have founded the FONARU network and are inviting participants to the 1st Sustainability Congress in the Ruhr region in September.

The sustainability congress serves as a platform for participants to intensively exchange ideas with each other. Experts from science and practice present sustainable business models as well as innovative impulses during their lectures at the event. During the Get2gether and various other opportunities, guests can exchange ideas and motivate each other to take action that may have previously been off the radar. While addressing the topic of sustainability together, ecological as well as economic and social aspects are examined and discussed in greater detail. Tips for the implementation of sustainable measures are included in the congress.

In its own company, communicode AG pays attention to sustainable working methods and process structures and seeks constructive exchange in order to realize new initiatives for a sustainable future. communicode also sees itself as a guest at the Sustainability Congress, which would also like to learn from the other companies and make concrete use of the synergy effect of the event.

The Sustainability Congress will start on 9th September at 9 am in the Conference and City Hotel Franz and will end after six lectures as well as further activities with the Get2gether at 3 pm. The barrier-free inclusion company Hotel Franz recently celebrated its 10th anniversary and underlines the sustainable mission of the congress. Together with the FONARU partners, communicode is looking forward to lively participation and interesting as well as sustainable inspiration.
