Special Interest: Ethical Style by Creativeworld

The topic of sustainability is also becoming increasingly important for creative products and materials. The Special Interest "Ethical Style by Creativeworld" at Creativeworld specifically focuses on sustainability-oriented exhibitors and their products and enables interested trade buyers to search for these suppliers in a more targeted way.

Ethical Style by Creativeworld Logo

Whether recyclable materials, biodegradable ingredients, reduced packaging or refillable cartridges: The Special Interest Ethical Style by Creativeworld marks suppliers who achieve remarkable things in the area of sustainability. It offers visitors orientation through the separate labelling of the selected exhibitors in the exhibitor and product search and on site at the exhibition stands.

The Ethical Style Spot - a special presentation with exhibitor products - clearly shows how the companies integrate the topic of sustainability into their product range. Within the framework of several themes, which are based on the Ethical Style categories, both exhibitors and visitors receive valuable inspiration for the point of sale. At the same time, it is encouraged to create a knowledge transfer and open up new business contacts for visitors.

The application for Ethical Style 2024 starts in August 2023.

The jury of experts will examine the applicants and clearly structure the products in six sustainability categories. Each exhibitor can fulfil one or more of these requirements with their products and thus also fit into more than one of these categories. These include:

Environmentally friendly materials
Products made from environmentally friendly materials such as renewable raw materials with low environmental impact throughout their life cycle or organically certified products.

Resource-saving production
Efficient, resource-friendly production processes e.g. in the energy, water or waste sectors.

Fair & social production
Products that are manufactured in social facilities and/or under socially responsible conditions and/or fair trade conditions and that promote social and/or cultural development in the producer countries.

Re/Upcycling Design
Products whose raw materials are designed for recycling or that are processed into new products from used or no longer usable waste materials.

Products that are handmade and that maintain and promote craft skills.

Sustainable Innovation
Products that through their innovative nature (process, material, solution) help to conserve resources, e.g. quantity of raw materials, waste, energy and water.

This jury is made up of:

  • Christina Bocher, DEKRA Assurance Services GmbH
  • Kees Bronk, CBI, Center for the Promotion of Imports from developing countries
  • Lutz Dietzold, German Design Council
  • Sabine Meyer, -side-by-side-, Caritas Wendelstein Werkstätten
  • Mimi Sewalski,
