Antalis brings sustainability to fore at Fespa
Tuesday, May 3, 2022
Antalis is planning to bring a sustainability focus to its exhibit at the upcoming Fespa Global Print Expo show.
The merchant and distributor is a premium supporter of Fespa’s new Sustainability Spotlight feature.
Antalis plans to showcase its Coala range of substrates for large-format printing, including its new Coala Interior Film range and Coala Windows Décor decorative films.
The Coala range encompasses around 200 products spanning paper, film, textiles and adhesives.
Xavier Jouvet, group papers and visualcom business director at Antalis International, said the firm would use Fespa as an opportunity to “encourage eco-responsible practices in our industry”.
“We are committed to meeting our clients’ high expectations on the transition to an efficient and improved circular economy by helping them choose environmentally friendly alternative solutions for their projects,” he said.
Through its Green Star System Antalis measures factors such as the type of raw material used and recyclability at end-of-life, with substrates ranked from zero to five.
The firm aims for 75% of products sold to be rated three stars or higher by 2030.
Fespa takes place in Berlin from 31 May to 3 June.
The Sustainability Spotlight aims to provide a hub for information about reducing environmental impact. It includes conference sessions with guest speakers presenting short insights into issues such as how to avoid greenwash and the key priorities to meet brand owners' needs.
