DuPont announces call for entries for 22nd annual competition

Program to focus on sustainability achievements, packaging innovation, and waste/cost reduction.

Pw 4530 Dupont Award
DuPont Packaging has announced a call for entries in the 22nd DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation, which it says is the industry’s longest-running, independently judged competition.

“At DuPont, we work with brand owners and value chain partners to develop cost-effective packaging structures that help reduce waste and have improved environmental performance. Innovation is key to these new packaging approaches,” says Carolann Haznedar, global business director – DuPont Packaging. “In this year’s program, we will be broadening the focus of the DuPont Awards from solely sustainability achievements to include packaging innovation and waste/cost reduction as well as sustainability achievements.

“DuPont sponsors this program to recognize achievements that provide learnings to the industry and to highlight the importance of collaboration. To foster knowledge-sharing on the winners of the 22nd Awards, we will conduct a global online event that will be open to the industry. In addition, winners will be honored in a celebration event with senior DuPont executives.”

Entries for the 22nd DuPont Awards will be evaluated for excellence in packaging innovation, sustainability, and cost/waste reduction. Entry forms and guidelines are available, with the deadline for entries scheduled for Feb. 12, 2010.

There is no fee for entry, and DuPont materials do not need to be in the packaging structure. In evaluating entries, the judges will consider excellence in one or more of these areas: innovation, sustainability, and cost/waste reduction. Winners will be announced in the spring of 2010. Additional information is available on the awards program and on past winners.
