The Sustainable Packaging Coalition®, a membership-based organisation of over 320 brands, retailers, packaging manufacturers, suppliers and others, will bring together participants from across Europe for SPC Engage: London, an event focused on helping brands achieve their sustainable packaging goals, on October 23-24.
SPC Engage: London’s theme is Activating Packaging Sustainability Through Goals Implementation. This event will help brands, retailers, and their supply chain partners understand how to align their goals with larger global sustainability frameworks and commitments like the Sustainable Development Goals, The EU Circular Economy Package, and The New Plastics Economy.
The salon-style event will include interactive presentations and panels that will provide a balanced overview on key topics and trade-offs in sustainability goals. There will also be workshops that will help brands, their suppliers, and others in the sustainable packaging community to develop actionable strategies to implement their goals while providing them with a platform to learn, share ideas, and collaborate with industry peers.
“SPC Engage London will take a deep dive on all the different elements at play when it comes to executing sustainable packaging goals, from the role that legislation, policy, and voluntary commitments play, how retailers and labelling schemes can influence consumers and supply chain partners to the key decisions companies need to make to fulfil their sourcing and recovery goals,” said Barbara Fowler, Director of Stakeholder Engagement, GreenBlue. “The SPC is looking forward to bringing new perspectives to these very relevant topics at a global level.”
