UBM EMEA has achieved this by streamlining the procurement process to identify a single supplier that can guarantee the sustainable credentials of all paper materials used. This will substantially contribute to UBM plc’s target to reduce emissions from offices and events 11.4% per square meter by 2020, from a 2015 base-year.
UBM EMEA will work with Denmar Independent Paper, the appointed supplier, to ensure all seven offices located within the UK and internationally are using the approved paper source. This will then be rolled out to additional divisions with UBM Plc.
