SPC Engage: Minneapolis

Activate Your Sustainable Packaging Goals

Jun 17, 2019 Minneapolis

A NEW Sustainable Packaging Coalition Event

Co-located with Circularity 2019

Activating Packaging Sustainability
Through Goal Implementation

The Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) Engage event is designed to promote solutions and catalyze action by industry that enables more sustainable packaging in a circular economy. The theme of SPC Engage Minneapolis is activating corporate sustainability goals. This event will help organizations understand how to align their goals with larger global sustainability frameworks and commitments like the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Plastics Economy, and provide key insights into goal setting and implementation unique to each organization. Some key topics the event will address include: thinking through corporate sustainability goals, the pitfalls, and the right questions to ask; identifying best in class goals and their nuances; and exploring successful strategies companies can use in their own organizations.

The salon-style event format will include interactive presentations and panels that provide a balanced overview on key topics and tradeoffs in sustainable sourcing and recovery goals accompanied by workshops that will help brands, their suppliers, and others in the sustainable packaging community to develop actionable strategies to implement their goals while providing them with a platform to learn, share ideas, and collaborate with their industry peers.

This event is open to SPC members & non-members. Special discounts available for SPC members.
