BPMA gains insight into sustainability

This year’s Merchandise World show at Milton Keynes saw the launch of a new area Eco World, giving exhibitors the opportunity to highlight products with environmental or sustainable credentials.

The BPMA wanted to understand the perception in the industry regarding sustainability and prepared an Eco Questionnaire to determine the potential knowledge gaps and misunderstandings.  This information will then be used to create content and education around the subject to increase awareness and understanding in the BPMA supply chains. 

With 150 questionnaires completed so far, the BPMA have already seen some interesting results, however, the BPMA would still love to know your opinion on this important issue.

Simply follow the below link to complete our short survey by 30th September 2019, at which time the data will be collated and analysed.


To say thank you, the BPMA ran an incentive for Merchandise World visitors and exhibitors by dedicating a certain number of trees against the questionnaires that were completed.  The following people had a tree dedicated in their name through the Woodland Trust to support their work standing up for woods, trees and wildlife across the UK.

Once the responses have been collated and analysed, the BPMA will be presenting the findings back to our members.

The BPMA will also soon be announcing more information including the date and venue for its Sustainability Group meeting.
