Education and Outreach

As part of the SPC's education and outreach, it holds several in-person and online meetings and educational events a year. The SPC believes it will require collaboration throughout the supply chain to affect the change needed to realize sustainable packaging. As a result, the SPC continually looks for opportunities to advance its mission through participation in and hosting of conferences and meetings.


SPC March Open Forum- Welcome to the Recovery Revolution


Wednesday, March 14, 2012
11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

This presentation will review a new economic model that strives to be the fourth major economic revolution (after the agricultural, industrial, and information revolutions) and how that model influences the packaged good industry. The presentation will cover three main topic areas: 

  1. A vision for an integrated/holistic supply chain for packaging
  2. A commitment to strive for zero waste and mechanisms to achieve this goal 
  3. A commitment to creating new markets for high value-added re-manufactured goods
