We believe that sustainability is a journey, not an end destination. We adopt a full life cycle approach to all of our sustainability practices and services. Our aim is to minimise the environmental impact of P-O-P and to lead the industry to the point of effective self-regulation on sustainability issues. The POPAI Sustainability Standard (PSS) aims to help all POPAI members measure environmental performance of P-O-P display, effectively communicate their sustainable practices with impact and integrity, and move to a position of best practice.


The PSS follows seven modules covering the entire lifecycle of a piece of P-O-P. From Corporate, Premises, Design and Plant, to Materials and Processes, Supply Chain Management, Logistics and End of Life.
