Fossil-based plastic production is still growing exponentially. Only 9% of all plastic is recycled and it can take hundreds of years to degrade. Recycling is critical, but the world cannot rely on that alone. In recent years, we’ve seen over 450 companies pledge to dramatically slash their use or production of plastic by 2025 as part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation circular economy commitments. We’ve watched as retailers have made public commitments to remove products packaged in non-recyclable materials from their shelves and have seen governments implement policies to support the circular economy. But how do we develop sustainable packaging solutions that protect food safety and availability everywhere, while living up to critical environmental and climate commitments? Join Tetra Pak in this discussion about ways companies can incorporate more renewable and recyclable content into their packaging to have the lowest impact on nature.

Topics include:

  • Innovations in plant-based materials, including wood fibre and plant-based polymers
  • The safety and performance of plant-based packaging materials
  • Partnering with consumers to secure recycling behavior change
  • How companies can apply a full value-chain approach to their sustainability strategies

Moderator: Heather Clancy, Editorial Director, GreenBiz Group

Speakers:

  • Jason Pelz, Vice President of Sustainability, Tetra Pak, Americas
  • Trewin Restorick, Founder & CEO, Hubbub
