How to Be a Successful Partner in a Collaborative Circular Supply Chain
In the quest to meet consumer demand, consumer-packaged goods companies have contributed significantly to the creation of waste, sometimes prioritizing convenience and cost savings over environmental considerations. Today, most large CPG companies are creating sustainability initiatives through 2050, but sometimes choices are made that may sound promising to consumers but aren’t truly effective.
For example, a product package that is compostable sounds sustainable. But many municipalities don’t support composting. How can companies ensure that they are making the most effective decisions? By working together with materials suppliers, reprocessors, and materials recovery facilities (MRFs), CPG companies can identify solutions for improving packaging design and material selection across the entire value chain.
The Packaging Recycling Summit, presented by Packaging World, engages brands, materials suppliers, reprocessors, and materials recovery facilities (MRFs) to shed light on all the links of the circular supply chain, revealing what materials can and will be recycled. By fostering collaboration and establishing connections across all segments, businesses can build more resilient and sustainable supply chains that benefit both their bottom line and the planet.
From recyclability to material selection, partnering prior to design, current legislation, and innovations, you will also learn about other stakeholders in the circular supply chain, and how working together creates the most meaningful impact.
