Jakarta, 10 December 2021 – Asia Pulp & Paper Japan Ltd. (APPJ) and Universal Paper Co. Ltd. participated in EcoPro 2021 held in Tokyo, Japan from the 8th to 10th of December 2021. Themed Towards a Sustainable Society, this was the 9th consecutive year that APP participated in this annual international exhibition and seminar that featured stakeholders and solutions to solve environmental and social issues.
Both companies hosted a booth in the exhibition on Building a Sustainable Society for Japan, the World and the Future, featuring exhibitors under the four sub-themes of Revitalizing Business; Implementing Project Exhibitions and Seminars; Proposing Lifestyles and Inviting Children Who Are Responsible for the Next Generation. Exhibitors included those with solutions on energy, recycling, climate resilience and measures, eco-solutions and activities for a sustainable society.
Speaking on the participation of APPJ and Universal Paper Co. Ltd. in EcoPro 2021, its Representative Director Tan Ui Sian said, “APPJ and Universal Paper Co. Ltd. are proud to support and participate in EcoPro 2021. It presents an excellent platform both for us to showcase our products and solutions for a sustainable world, but also provides us an opportunity to engage a global audience to exchange ideas and learn from others. No single company or country holds all the solutions to tackle some of the greatest environmental challenges facing this generation, but collectively, if we act together and pull together our energies, resources and ideas, we can definitely accelerate the pace of actions that will protect and preserve the environment for this and future generations.”
The booth was located within the Revitalizing Business sub-theme zone, which also housed participating companies and organizations representing a variety of businesses from small and medium enterprises to global brands. Next-generation environmental and SDGs products and technologies covering every area of business, including consumer products, industrial goods, energies and services, also gathered together under the exhibition.
