FINAT Congress 2012 - Athens - 6 to 9 June 2012
Programme brochure | Provisional participants list (as per 24 May 2012)
In today’s developed society, businesses are increasingly embracing a corporate approach that goes beyond the single dimension of company profit. Awareness is growing that short-term profit maximization cannot be achieved without taking into account a company’s corporate responsibility towards the environment, the community in which it is operating and the people it employs.
‘Sustainable entrepreneurship’ is aimed at maximising ‘PPP Value’: People, Planet and Profit. In this concept, the scope of entrepreneurship is broadened from the ‘here and now’ to the ‘there and then’.
Under the title, ‘Sustainable labelling – now is your chance’, the 2012 FINAT Congress took a specific look at the various aspects associated with the buzzword ‘sustainability’ for our industry. It highlighted the perspective from one of the leading customers of our industry, demonstrated how to combine economy and ecology when designing packaging and labels, and allowed the opportunity to share and discuss best practice with industry leaders and entrepreneurs in different areas of corporate sustainability. It provided inspiration from the Live8 experience and presented an outlook into our common future from a leading futurologist. And it gave participants a first-hand opportunity to learn about the latest trends and developments affecting the European self-adhesive label industry.
A congress report will follow soon.
