K 2025 Motto and Key Topics: the Power of Plastics! Green – Smart – Responsible

Earlier this year, the K 2025 committees defined the motto for K 2025, The World’s No.1 Trade Fair for Plastics & Rubber (October 8 – 15, 2025 in Düsseldorf, Germany). It consists of one slogan and three core messages, all focusing on the key topics of K in 2025:

The Power of Plastics! Green – Smart – Responsible.

– Shaping the circular economy

– Embracing digitalization

– Caring about people

The slogan reflects the current values and goals of the industry reflected by the trade fair. “The Power of Plastics!” underscores the indisputable role that plastics play in various sectors of industry, ranging from medical device technology and automotive to packaging solutions. Plastics are an indispensable component of many industries, make a significant contribution to innovations and progress and are essential for shaping a sustainable future. “Green – Smart – Responsible” is synonymous with the sector’s commitment to act sustainably, intelligently  and responsibly in plastics production and handling.

The additional core messages focus on the following three key topics:

Shaping the circular economy:

The industry is increasingly based on a sustainable circular economy that promotes the reuse, recycling and reduction of plastic waste.

Embracing digitalization:

Companies in the plastics and rubber industry are aware of the transformative power of digitalization and are increasingly using digital technologies to boost the efficiency of their machines and products and to drive innovations.

Caring about people

The industry is aware of its social responsibility to protect the environment. Responsible handling of resources is the focus here. At the same time, the sector increasingly promotes young talents and creates future prospects for young professionals in the plastics and rubber industry.

K 2025 invites exhibitors, experts, multipliers and interested parties from around the world to follow its motto and shape the future of the plastics and rubber industry together.
