Sustainability is an asset and an opportunity for your business. Do you have the knowledge to achieve your company’s goals?
The Sustainable Packaging Coalition created the Essentials of Sustainable Packaging training program to educate professionals about the top subjects in sustainable packaging, such as:
- Designing for recovery
- Compostable packaging
- Material health
- Ocean plastic pollution
And more courses are being added each year!
Courses available on-demand online
The training program is designed for professionals and for whole teams in a company, such as sales, marketing, and executive leadership. No previous packaging knowledge is needed to benefit from this training program. By taking these courses, you will be able to understand how sustainability effects packaging decisions, and your company as a whole.
Developed by the SPC and taught by the SPC staff, the Essentials of Sustainable Packaging starts with a 5-part “Core Content” course that covers all major materials and a multitude of product sectors, diving into the sustainability considerations for a package’s entire life cycle: sourcing, design, use, recovery, and beyond.
Our team of packaging and sustainability experts develops new courses quarterly on emerging industry topics. Each of these courses unpacks advanced and nuanced considerations for their unique supply chains, environmental profiles, and recovery possibilities.
