Paperworld promotes sustainability and green products
| 28 November, 2019
With sustainability, environmental protection and ecological conduct becoming key issues in the stationery sector, Paperworld says it is now focusing on sustainability even more closely.
On Tuesday, 28 January 2020, the fair's Sustainable Office Day is dedicated to sustainable products, and environmentally conscious purchasing. Lectures and examples of best practice will present practical solutions for sustainable and environmentally friendly office equipment.
"Environmental protection and sustainability are not short-lived hot topics. On the contrary, an awareness of these issues has become established in the office and stationery sector, which manufacturers, buyers and consumers address in a variety of ways. No-one wishing to remain future-proof can turn a blind eye to this subject. Our 'Sustainable Office Day' aims to set an example for the entire industry", says Michael Reichhold, Director Paperworld.
The Paperworld team is supported by B.A.U.M. e.V. (German Environmental Management Association) as a cooperation partner. In the course of the action day, the environmental organisation will present a varied and high-caliber programme of lectures in “Saal Europa” (Foyer Hall 4.0). B.A.U.M. was founded in 1984 as the first non-partisan environmental initiative of trade and industry and is today, with more than 500 members, the largest of its kind in Europe and a long-standing partner of Paperworld.
The Sustainable Office Day is accompanied each year with a Green Directory brochure published by Chmielorz Verlag in cooperation with Messe Frankfurt. It covers current sustainability-related topics, and documents companies offering green products with a description and placement in the hall plan.
