“Sustainability” aspect to shine at Paperworld 2021
27 July 2020: The three topics of environmentally conscious shopping, ecological practices and sustainability have been key issues in the paper, office supplies and stationery sector for a long time. So, for the first time, Paperworld expo will take place from 30 January to 2 February 2021 at Frankfurt am Main, Germany, with a prime central theme: “Sustainability,” which will feature all environmental aspects of ‘Paper’.
The Paperworld team at Messe Frankfurt, the organizers of the Show, is being supported by their cooperation partner B.A.U.M. – the German Environmental Management Association. The “Paperworld Trends” are also all about sustainability. The focus is on both environmentally conscious products and gentle processing methods. What they all have in common is that they combine future-oriented developments in office equipment and valuable tips for an attractive store design. For specialist dealers, Paperworld Trends is the first port of call to experience the trends and innovations for the coming season live. They are developed by the bora.herke.palmisano style agency on behalf of Messe Frankfurt.
There is will be cooperation with associations and clubs, which inform both visitors and exhibitors about their activities and the latest developments in sustainability. The Agency for Renewable Resources (Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe – FNR) will be presenting itself with the “Renewable Office”. As lead partner of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture, the FNR promotes greater consideration of sustainable (office) products in public and private procurement.
According to the organizers, 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. “Making sustainability the top theme of Paperworld in 2021 is an important and pioneering step into the future. I am delighted that we are taking this step together with our exhibitors and partners”, says Michael Reichhold, Director of Paperworld.
