Esko has announced a new program of virtual events focusing on a megatrend in the packaging industry — environmental sustainability.
“We all know that amidst political volatility and economic uncertainty, brands and their packaging suppliers are also facing increasing pressure to demonstrate their environmental sustainability credentials,” said Jan De Roeck, Esko Director of Marketing, Industry Relations & Strategy. “As a result of global public concern, and depending on the market a business operates in, having sustainable operations has rapidly evolved from being a ‘nice to do’ strategy to a ‘must do’ critical demand.
“These drivers of change — responding to consumer demands, and accelerating their own sustainability commitments — require the industry to deliver a wholesale shift in packaging design, development, and production.”
The first event, on October 18, will examine sustainable packaging trends expected in the coming decade.
The series comprises the following events:
October 18, 4pm CET/10am ET: Sustainable Packaging Market Trends to 2032. Analyze the major drivers and trends anticipated to impact the development of sustainable packaging through 2032.
October 19, 4pm CET/10am ET: Understanding the Green Deal – A New Best Practice to Achieve your Sustainability Goals. Review the Green Deal concept and how brands are responding to market challenges impacting EU laws and regulations.
