Sustainability Standard for Suppliers

We are now seeing a compelling business case for embedding sustainability within the P-O-P supply chain. Brands and retailers are already placing more emphasis on environmental, social and corporate responsibility considerations. Many of them now have their own internal sustainability goals. It's also a topic that is shaping design briefs too, with clients demanding greater innovation and cost savings during the design process. But being 'green' isn't just good for the environment - it's good for business too. Driving sustainability efficiencies through every level of your business can result in reduced energy, water, packaging, and waste.
