As the global UN Plastics Treaty enters the final stages of negotiations, organizations must rethink single-use plastics, evaluate how to operationalize circularity, and irrevocably shift business models. Companies must go beyond processes and risk management to capitalize on the market opportunity of the circular economy.

In this exclusive webcast, held the day after the conclusion of the latest treaty negotiations, or INC-4, a panel of experts from business, technology, and civil society will discuss what happened there and the implications for packaging suppliers and brands.

Among the things you’ll learn:

The practical implications of INC-4 based on a real-time report-out of the event.
How recycling, reuse and regeneration scenarios impact the ways companies can comply with packaging regulation, operate profitably, and reduce waste.
The business opportunity to end plastic pollution and drive systemic change.

As packaging — and plastics in general — continue to grow as a hot-button issue, this timely webcast will provide the insight and inspiration companies need to move toward more circular models.

New initiative helps businesses make sustainable packaging choices

New initiative helps businesses make sustainable packaging choices

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is collaborating with sustainability software company Empauer to offer a comprehensive life cycle assessment (LCA) package for small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

The aim is to support SMEs in making informed and science-based decisions when selecting packaging materials. This can be a challenging process, something the AIP observed in its SME training programs, where it identified a pressing need for affordable and customised LCA solutions that simplify the sometimes complex business of undertaking sustainability assessments for packaging design.

The report part of the package can be utilised for internal decisions, including selection of packaging materials and components. It can also help SMEs navigate the shift towards more sustainable alternatives within the business.

The LCA Decision Package is designed to provide AIP members and the wider industry with access to the latest tools and expertise, enabling them to reduce their environmental footprint and make responsible choices in line with global sustainability goals.

The AIP said that the main benefit to SMEs in using the LCA Decision Package was that users did not have to understand all the complexities of LCAs, as they will be provided with the comparison information and assistance to understand the environmental impact for each packaging material choice, depending on the parameters they select.
