MWC Shanghai: Largest Carbon Neutral Exhibition and Conference in Asia

MWC Shanghai 2018 was officially certified by the British Standards Institution as carbon neutral under the international PAS 2060 standard, reinforcing its position as the largest carbon neutral exhibition and conference in Asia.
