Even small steps achieve a big effect

Customers want sustainable concepts from retailers and producers – from the goods to the shop fittings. Just “a good thing”. Many exhibitors at EuroShop 2020 have taken this to heart and are presenting their retail solutions with a sense of responsibility.

Sustainable packaging: the Liquid Dispenser from umdasch

Simply refill empty packaging in the shop? umdasch launched this idea with a freestanding dispenser solution and received numerous awards for this sustainable idea. The first bottle is bought, after that it can be filled again and again. Individually designable: the brand branding.

Digital check-out: an app to combat paper waste

All cash receipts are digitally stored here in an app. For the retailer and the customer this is an absolute added value – especially since the 2020 regulations for issuing receipts. All information is automatically sent to the smartphone – guarantees that expire are always in view.

Transparent environmental impact through the EPD award

SALTO’s XS4 electronic door handles do not require any wiring, providing the basis for versatile electronic access solutions with a wealth of functions. The narrow plate fittings are issued with the Environmental Product Declaration EPD from the German Institute Bauen und Umwelt (building and environment). This makes the environmental impact during manufacture, use and maintenance transparent.

Light boxes and displays
