In today’s consumer world, the use of sustainable products is gaining importance. Keeping with industry norms, Paperworld Middle East attempts to address this subject with a special area, “The Green Room”, where environmentally friendly products from exhibitors are featured along with the ‘eco-credentials’ of the items.
Why is this important?
Traditionally, the Middle East has been known for its high consumption levels, but recently, there has been a noticeable change in consumer patterns with a greater emphasis on being environmentally responsible. Both corporates and individuals in the region are increasingly opting for ‘green’ products. This trend is further emphasised by governments around the region setting new environmentally friendly regulations in an attempt to reduce their carbon footprint.
