DÜSSELDORF, Germany , November 17, 2022 (press release) –

Demand for sustainable packaging and consumer goods to support a circular economy has never been greater. Whether through regulatory pressure or consumer demand, virtually every aspect of the global value chain for packaging and consumer goods is being transformed by challenges that require holistic thinking, collaboration, and innovative solutions. Back for its third year, Henkel Sustainability Days is the unique platform that brings the industry together to enable this change. Held from November 30 to December 1, the virtual conference is where the global packaging and consumer goods industry meets to reshape the future.

Sustainability Days 2022 is an unmissable virtual conference that presents the trends, challenges, and opportunities on the path to sustainability. Completely free, the fully digital event provides a forum to hear from industry experts and to meet and share best practice with peers from around the world.

“We are excited for this year’s edition of Henkel Sustainability Days, as it continues to build on the successful, fruitful exchanges that we’ve had with our partners along the packaging value chain,” says Corbett Wallace, Corporate Vice President – Consumer Goods Adhesives, Henkel. “We want to continue growing this event so that we can bring together global leaders from the industry to discuss crucial sustainability-focused topics and come up with tangible ways we can make a difference.”
