From 21-23 May, the Products of Change booth (S226) will host a selection of the pioneering brands and licensing partners at the vanguard of industry change.

The team will spotlight new approaches to design and product creation in alignment with industry sustainable development, while paying homage to the cutting edge at which these companies are working.

Companies showcasing this year will include: the LEGO Group and its Build the Change sustainability campaign; Smiley’s Future Positive initiative; the product environmental impact scoring company, Dayrize; Fabacus, the team behind the industry’s first digital product passport; the closed-loop waste management team Upcycle Labs; and Refried Apparel.
