Paperworld 2020 embraces sustainability
December 18, 2019
Sustainability, environmental protection and ecological conduct have become key issues in the stationery sector and are therefore also a part of Paperworld.
The international trade fair for paper, office supplies and writing instruments has been addressing the “green office” theme for years, and is now focusing on it even more closely.
Recycled paper has been a standard part of stationery stores product range for many years. However, environmental protection has long since ceased to be limited to paper products, retailers and manufacturers from every sector of the office and stationery industry are increasingly focusing on sustainable and environmentally friendly products.
The Paperworld team explained that ecology in the workplace is an issue for the future because it not only serves to protect and preserve the environment, but also goes hand in hand with economic considerations. Conserving resources and increasing work efficiency are closely linked to ecological aspects. A “green orientation” also supports the environmentally conscious purchasing behaviour of consumers, which is increasingly coming to the fore.
As an international platform for the office and stationery market and a mirror of the industry, Paperworld also focuses on sustainability and environmental protection. Among the extensive range of products for office and stationery, environmentally friendly materials play a major role for brand-name companies as well as for suppliers of niche products.
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”, said Michael Reichhold, Director Paperworld.
