At this year's DRUPA in Dusseldorf, the EDP Award was presented to 3A Composites for the third time. This time, the paper-based DISPA® board received an award in the category "Best environmentally friendly substrate".
The European Digital Press Association (EDP) comprises 20 member magazines all over Europe, covering 25 countries and reaching more than half a million readers. Every year, the EDP Technical Committee judges products on the value of their new technical features. These can be technological innovations that improve speed, quality, usability and functionality or that reduce the environmental impact as well as cost to the user.
DISPA® is made of 100% FSC®-certified paper (FSC®-C127595). The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is the only globally accepted certification system for responsible forest management. It stands up for a sustainable forest cultivation under strict environmental and social standards to protect all important functions of the forest. The FSC® label builds on a consistently reliable process: Papers used to produce DISPA® are all FSC®-certified. Thus, the end customer has a clear indicator that the paper layers come from responsible forest management and the use of forests is in accordance with the social, economic and ecological needs. In addition, the production process is audited by FSC®, that means that non-controlled / non –certified paper is not mixed with the certified stock of DISPA®.
