Symposium Living Sustainability

24. September 2010

For 25 years, Bischof + Klein has numbered amongst the industrial pioneers which have declared environmental protection to be a firm part of their corporate policy.

B+K was making use of the "25 years of sustainability management" anniversary to portray its activities and its commitment. A specialist conference with well-known speakers on September 24th 2011 in Lengerich's Gempthalle directly addressed a specialist audience with a high-quality programme of events. The phases in the product life cycle of flexible packaging and films were placed under scrutiny: raw material procurement, production, use and disposal/recycling. B+K wishes to discuss the challenges posed here together with suppliers, business partners and public representatives.

How will the packaging of the future look? How is B+K counteracting the threat of resource scarcity? Can B+K produce without the use of solvents? How does B+K deal with the challenge of demographic change? B+K provided customers and suppliers a platform to discuss these and other socially and ecologically relevant questions with experts from the field of sustainability at a symposium with the motto, „Living Sustainability“.

With regard to the added value chain, there was a special focus on use of raw materials, product management, customer orientation and circular flow economy.
