Environmental sustainability is today a worldwide norm. There is a prevailing concern over the impact of products, but since 2017, particular focus has shifted to packaging. Waste, single-use, non-recyclable packaging, high energy and heavy resource consumption plastics are under heavy scrutiny.
Sustainability has slowly but steadily been taking precedence globally as a key driver of change since the new Millennium. Over the past decade, however, sustainability has easily cemented itself as critical for the survival of organizations in any industry. It is no longer an issue of being environmentally conscious, but rather integrating sustainability into strategy and decision making, and using it to drive innovation while securing social license to operate.
In the packaging industry, sustainability has come front and center with packaging under great scrutiny due to the impacts of its waste on the planet. With packaging essential in almost all industries, the focus has now shifted from operational efficiency to sustainable product innovation reducing material use, transitioning to renewable resources, reducing unnecessary packaging (single-use, secondary packaging), designing products for recyclability, recycling technologies, and so forth.
If you are not producing efficient and sustainable products, you might lose your eco-conscious customers, be banned by legislations and hinder your brand equity and reputation.
Sustainability is not an afterthought. There are considerable risks threatening business continuity including resource and raw material availability, which affects costs and production, customer demand for sustainable products, legislation, regulations, bans, and taxes on non-sustainable products, and there is brand equity and reputation.
This webinar aims at empowering you with knowledge on different advancements in packaging materials and recycling technologies to help you reduce your environmental footprint. Starting with beginning of life initiatives through sourcing more sustainable, bio-based, and renewable raw material, we will explore circular packaging design and end of life options away from landfills. A snapshot of the major innovative breakthroughs that are shaping the future of sustainable packaging will then be given.
Another focus point will be on the challenges faced in waste recycling; from feedstock sourcing, sorting, and segregation to the selection of the appropriate recycling technology to meet the stringent food safety requirements and the policies and regulations that are being introduced by governmental entities and regulatory bodies.
