From January 31 to February 1, 2020, the congress, which has been held annually since 2014, will take place in the German capital Berlin for the first time. The Festival of Innovation & Change brings together players from business, science, education, politics and society and is the world’s largest meeting of the C2C community. This year’s Cradle to Cradle Congress is under the patronage of the German Minister of the Environment, Svenja Schulze. With its innovative ideas and projects, the hubergroup is a driver of sustainable recycling management and, as an important contact in this field, plays a key role in shaping the content of the congress.

With the participation of Heiner Klokkers, CEO of the hubergroup, at the congress, one of the leading international printing ink manufacturers is attaching corresponding importance to the subject of sustainability and environmental protection. “We are aware of our social responsibility and see it as our task not only to optimise our own products and processes, but also to pass on our knowledge and thus provide a bit of education,” the chairman of the management board said.

Bernd Groh, Global Product & Portfolio Manager SF/UV hubergroup, one of the key players at the C2C Congress, also knows: “Sustainability is a topic that concerns us all. Only if we all pull together can we make a difference and change the market in the long term. That is why we are looking forward to the exchange and networking with strategic partners.”

One of these partners is Carlsberg, which will operate a joint stand with the hubergroup at the C2C Congress. In cooperation with the beer producer, the printing ink specialist once again demonstrated its great commitment to sustainable products. The manufacturer’s bottle labels have already been printed since beginning of 2019 with the eco-offset ink Premium Plus, which is certified in silver by Cradle to Cradle.

A team of experts from the hubergroup will not only be available at the exhibition stand to answer questions from the press, customers and an interested trade audience, but will also be available to answer questions in interactive workshops on the topics of Plastics & Papers and C2C & Healthy Printing.

A detailed programme can be found on the event website (c2c-congress.org/programme).
