‘Sustainability’ theme at drupa 2012


With the motto "one world - one drupa", the international trade fair for the print and media industry takes place in Düsseldorf 03-16 May 2012.

"The sustainable production of media is not just a sign of responsible behaviour. It is both a future model and an innovation motor in equal measure. For this reason, it is important to us that the subject field of sustainability is an integral part of drupa 2012," explains Manuel Mataré, Director of drupa 2012.

 
Under the title of "Media Mundo @ drupa", a special exhibit on sustainability is planned, with whose implementation the industry initiative Media Mundo has been entrusted as a cooperation partner. On about 200 m² of exhibition space, visitor information, live discussions and exciting presentations from experts and industry players will be offered over the two weeks of the trade fair. All of this will be framed by an alternating themed exhibit, at which countless partners of the Media Mundo initiative, leading companies and organisations will inform and inspire. Special attention will be given to dialogue and participation. For example, the lectures will be streamed live on the Internet; questions can be posed in real-time to the speakers using Chat and Twitter functions - completely encompassing the motto of "one world - one drupa".

 
The range of themes includes all of the relevant aspects of sustainability of the printing and paper industries:


•     Sustainable  forestry and paper
•     Energy, energy efficiency and climatic change
•     Recycling and material efficiency
•     Process optimisation and sustainable corporate management
•     Sustainable product design
