Paramus, NJ – Every April 22nd, since 1970, we celebrate the birth of the modern environmental protection movement in the United States known as Earth Day. With this year’s theme being Invest in Our Planet™️, MC² will invest its time in recognizing our obligation to the care and sustainability needed in our daily operations. Implementing environmental awareness is a major component to our sector, and we are fully committed to making sure it is something we not only abide by, but something we live by.
At MC², we are heavily involved in event production, meaning the utilization of a variety of materials and logistics to serve our client’s needs as an event marketing agency. The main goal is to set an example by using our resources responsibly. This Earth Day, we look to highlight how essential economical, ecological, and social aspects of sustainability are incorporated into our daily activities, and how we can integrate them into our activities. As a division of MCH Group, a globally recognized live marketing company with a comprehensive services network, we strive to make a resource-friendly impact in the U.S. and around the world. MC² Europe has also executed an all-inclusive environment and sustainability plan that we mirror in various ways.
Environmental responsibility operations are applied in all areas, from the selection of materials to logistical supply and installation. There are multiple ways MC² aims to be a leader in sustainability in all business operations, including design, production, delivery, and disposal of our products.

Energy & Waste Management
Our energy management system tracks power consumption to enable decisions in regard to investments for improved energy and efficiency. We continue to track and analyze our energy sources as well as users and potential energy savings. For every type of waste that we come across, we make sure that a concept is in place to ensure proper collection and disposal.
