Following on from last year's hugely successful online event and the 2019 in-person event which attracted over 500 attendees, Sustainability in Packaging Europe plans to return to Barcelona across the 3-4 November 2021, with Renewable Matter as its media-partner.
Organized by Smithers, a worldwide authority on the packaging, paper and print industry supply chains, it is one of the most important international events on the themes of sustainable and circular packaging and promises to gather hundreds of attendees, including industry professionals and global stakeholders.
Recognised within the industry as the must-attend European conference to drive sustainable practices for packaging and a circular economy, the community continues to grow two-fold with previous attendees including H&M, Carrefour, Unilever, dyson, Tetra Pak, P&G, Mondelez International, Nestlé, Arla, Fonterra, PepsiCo, Carlsberg.
Dozens of speakers, in conferences and round tables, will discuss the development opportunities in the sector and strategies to make it more sustainable, the impacts of the Covid crisis, the methods for applying the principles of the circular economy to the world of packaging. In addition to being a precious moment for learning and exchange of good practices, the conference will also offer opportunities for networking and B2B. "It’s the place TO BE, today, for a sustainable future of our business", said Barilla’s Packaging Research & Sustainability Manager
