PAPACKS at the 36th party conference of the CDU Germany in Berlin

Berlin, May 8, 2024

PAPACKS was proud to be an exhibitor at the 36th Party Congress of the CDU Germany at the Estrel Congress Center. Our participation was aimed at demonstrating to the political decision-makers what is already possible today in the field of sustainable packaging and how these innovations can contribute to achieving ecological goals.

We would like to thank the party chairman Friedrich Merz and the treasurer of the CDU, Julia Klöckner, for their enthusiasm for our presence at the party conference and the successes and innovations of PAPACKS in the packaging world.

Both showed great interest in a more intensive exchange in the future.

Friedrich Merz, the newly re-elected chairman of the CDU, presented the party’s new basic program. He emphasized that it offers “orientation, stability and confidence in uncertain times” and made clear how important it is to give people security and trust. These values are also reflected in the work of PAPACKS, which develops sustainable solutions for the packaging industry to ensure ecological and economic safety.

A highlight of the party conference was Ursula von der Leyen’s speech, which impressively emphasized

"This Europe must be protected and preserved."

She spoke about the importance of European security and the need to invest in green technologies and emphasized the relevance of sustainable innovation for the future of Europe.

Tahsin Dag, CEO and founder of PAPACKS, on the party congress:

“Our participation in the 36th CDU party conference was an excellent opportunity to emphasize the importance of sustainable packaging and to present our innovations. The exchange with leading politicians reinforces our belief that economic success and ecological responsibility can be achieved together. We are confident that we can use this platform to further promote sustainable solutions.”

We were also particularly pleased about the visit from North Rhine-Westphalia by Paul Ziemiak, Secretary General of the CDU state association of North Rhine-Westphalia, and Dr. Patricia Peill, Treasurer of the state association;

The party conference provided an important platform to enter into dialog with leading politicians and help shape the political course for more sustainable corporate decisions. We are confident that our presence at the party conference will help to put sustainable packaging solutions more firmly on the political agenda and thus make a valuable contribution to the environment.
