Additional Value of Attending 

The Sustainability Trail at the trade fair is an initiative that sheds light on the brands and suppliers that have dedicated themselves to creating a more sustainable and ethical future. Recognising the need for responsible practices across the entire supply chain, the Sustainability Trail aims to celebrate and showcase those businesses that are actively making a positive impact. 

The trail begins within the Exhibitor Zone, where participating exhibitors have the opportunity to share their sustainable actions and practices. Categories such as Environment, Ethical, Material, and Packaging allow exhibitors to highlight specific areas where they are making an effort. Once exhibitors have provided their sustainable actions, this valuable information becomes an integral part of their exhibitor profile. Beyond the physical edition, visitors can access this information in the form of a dedicated digital trail, making it easily accessible for buyers and visitors to explore and learn about sustainable brands and suppliers. 

By consolidating all this information in one place, the Sustainability Trail facilitates a seamless experience for buyers seeking sustainable and ethical solutions.
