Industry Intelligence Inc., a market intelligence and information management company serving the forest products, packaging, and food and beverage industries, today announced an upcoming free webinar on Thursday, May 10, with Elizabeth Shoch of GreenBlue. This event Sustainable Packaging: Will we ever close the loop? is open for registration now at the i2live website, www.i2live.net.
As a measure of sustainability performance, packaging’s end-of-life fate has become a topic of great interest to the packaging industry. Accordingly, Extended Producer Responsibility schemes for packaging are attracting attention in the U.S. Material recovery is also a highly visible issue to the general public and a financial burden to local and state governments. Despite this high level of interest, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, in 2009, packaging materials and printed paper represented, by weight, just under half of all the municipal solid waste generated in the U.S. Where is the disconnect?
GreenBlue’s Sustainable Packaging Coalition is partnering with Industry Intelligence to present a complimentary webcast on this topic, covering the latest research findings from the Closing the Loop project. This webcast session is designed to add extra insights to the original presentation given at the Sustainable Packaging Symposium 2012, with a focus on material value recovery systems. This webcast will be presented by Liz Shoch, Closing the Loop Project Lead of GreenBlue’s Sustainable Package Coalition and a featured speaker at the Sustainable Packaging Symposium 2012. This presentation will benefit all companies along the packaging supply chain who are interested in sustainability, good stewardship of materials, learning from the experiences of others, and who see value in “waste.”
