A clear commitment to sustainability and human rights, technotrans is part of the UN global compact, the world’s largest and most important initiative for sustainable and responsible corporate governance. Decisive factors for membership are the company’s sustainable strategic orientation and its actions in line with ethical standards. As part of its new group strategy, ‘Future Ready 2025’, the thermal management specialist aims to expand its measures in the area of climate and environmental protection. 

“By joining the UN Global Compact, we are sending out another important signal that underscores the consistent expansion of our sustainability activities. The principles of the UN global compact have long underpinned our actions, and we also want to build our future corporate success on high social standards and in harmony with environmental and climate protection,” emphasizes Michael Finger, spokesman of the Board of Management of technotrans. 

technotrans’ wise step towards sustainability

The company’s commitment to sustainability is a key aspect of its new corporate strategy, ‘Future Ready 2025’. As part of this, technotrans formed, among other things, the new sustainability management division to improve the group-wide carbon footprint.

As a member of the UN global compact, the company visibly supports compliance with the ten principles on human rights, labor standards, environmental protection, and anti-corruption internationally. technotrans regularly presents the progress made within these fields of action in annual reports. 

By joining, the Sassenberg-based technology group has become part of a global network that now comprises some 19,000 participating companies from around 170 countries. This makes the UN global compact the world’s largest sustainable and responsible corporate governance initiative. 


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
