EDT Receives Tissue World's "Most Sustainable Exhibitor" Award

Tissue World, as part of their sustainability effort, has organized The ‘Most Sustainable Exhibitor Award’ which gives recognition to the exhibitors demonstrating a measurable commitment towards sustainable practices in stand construction, waste management, transportation, print/collateral, Health & Safety and community partnerships. EDT was selected as this year's recipient of the award.

EDT has repeatedly made a series of sustainability efforts to ensure its booth is as environmentally-friendly as possible.

Judges said the materials used for its display at this year’s show were “modular and re-usable"--EDT uses its booth construction materials for every Tissue World. The company also combines shipment of its booth with a large shipment to reduce its carbon footprint; it purchases local products for its construction; it combines its North American sales meeting with Tissue World to save on 15 airline tickets; it appointed an operations manager to look after Health and Safety who also coordinates the display build-up and dismantling--all the company’s staff are involved in this process; it always uses suppliers that adhere to high-level ethical standards. 

EDT sells natural, fermented enzymatic products that are not petroleum-based to highlight the message of value performance and improving the environment. Reducing energy use and the carbon footprint of papermaking is central to its value delivery.

Judges said: “EDT's products typically reduce paper drying energy consumption by 5-10% and those products also have a recycled fibre impact allowing mills to re-use fibres more often, thereby reducing landfill." Finally, EDT's technology improves the fibre yield and recycled producers can make tonnes of paper with less impact on trees.

EDT proudly accepted the award at a Gala Dinner at Pat O’Brien’s On The River and is most grateful for the acknowledgement!
