Whilst that’s never changed, the world we live in has and, unfortunately the display industry is one of the worst in the UK for wastage. This is why some time ago we took the decision to put sustainability at the heart of our business – not for a different “angle”, but because we believe it’s the right thing to do.
As parents it’s about the legacy we want to leave behind for future generations. As business-owners it’s about being a leader in tackling climate change – we’re proud to be green, its a big part of who we are.
This has led us to question everything about how the display industry sources, processes, manufactures and operates. And after investing time into researching and testing viable alternatives, we’re now an authority on producing sustainable exhibitions, displays and print. By the end of 2014 we’d made sure all our vans were powered by low-emission engines and early in 2015 we switched our premises over to electricity generated solely from renewable sources.
Today we’re proud to still be sticking to our principles although we recognise it’s a continual process of learning and discovery.
on sustainability for exhibitions, events and displays.

Partnering creative agency Melli, Elm developed and produced this striking POS package for pet food and accessories. As well as creating hanging signs, shelf strips and bus-stops, Elm designed an innovative high-level solution for concealing stored stock behind graphic fronted, hinged panels.
When Asda wanted to promote their Butcher’s Selection brand across 60 key stores, they turned to Elm for the complete package from concept to completion. Involving print and bespoke manufacturing, the scheme was rolled out across 60 stores requiring individual surveys due to the varying service-counter sizes and formats. The installation was undertaken with a night-time fitting programme to reduce store disruption.
Making its appearance at the 2014 Eco Build Show at Earls Court, Isotera’s stand gave them a high-impact showcase for their unique contactless power LED system. Elm developed the concept by Soapbox Creative Marketing, using a standard shell scheme, supplemented with cladding, display areas and ceiling. The final result gave Isotera a cost-effective, yet cohesive environment in which to engage visitors and develop new business. What’s more all the add-on elements were designed for easy de-installation and are now stored for future use on other shell schemes.
Elm supported creative agency Melli, to deliver a new POP campaign for organic baby food brand Ella’s Kitchen. From Melli’s concepts, Elm developed a cost-effective, easy assembled flat-pack solution as well as printing, finishing manufacturing and arranging logistics across 300 stores.
