The Entrepreneurs’ Programme and the Australian Institute of Packaging, in collaboration through the Sustainable Packaging SMART Project, are hosting a webinar on ‘The Future of Soft Plastics & Flexibles’ on 19 April.
This webinar will provide an opportunity to hear from packaging experts and better understand the current and true state-of-play with soft plastics and flexibles in Australia.
Guest speaker, Joe Foster, who is the CEO of Close the Loop will present a global view of the packaging world due to running his own businesses (O F Packaging) spanning across countries in multiple continents.
Topics to be covered include: future capabilities, mono material advancements, kerb side collection, reprocessing, greenwashing and the ACCC and the soft plastics taskforce.
“Sustainable Packaging ultimately ensures that the packaging design and materials provides the lowest possible environmental impact compared to existing or conventional packaging. Sometimes achieving the lowest possible environmental impact can be challenging, particularly when balancing various environmental criteria with other functional and commercial considerations,” the AIP said.
“Businesses are turning to sustainable packaging for many reasons, including the 2025 Sustainable Packaging targets, corporate social responsibility, reducing their carbon footprint, reducing unnecessary packaging and waste, increasing sales— and because retailers and consumers are demanding it as a key global movement.”
