Circular Packaging Economy

Circular economy is a concept that is finding it's way to most part of society today. 

Simplified, circular economy means that products and materials are recycled and reused and the goal is that virtually no material is going to landfill. 

Packaging has traditionally been highly recycled depending on the material. But to really be a part of the circular economy, measures are necessary to be taken. What material are to be used, how does plastics laminate work in these aspects, how is a packaging developer to think regarding the sustainability issues. How are we to handle and separate bio-plastics and ordinary plastics and last but not the least, how can we find applications for the recycled materials, perhaps a question primarily regarding plastics.

Circular economy is a complex structure that requires all the actors in the value chain to connect and share views and knowledge, as well as learning together. 

The event will be organised so that you'll have time to understand, ask questions and interact with the other participants and the speakers. 

Looking forward meeting you!

Learn about CSR tools to engage in the Circular Economy journey

Linnea Thurnstedt will give us an insight in how organisations can work together with CSR (Corporate Social Responsibilities) and give you tools that many organisations already have and are implementing. 

To deal with, for example "circular economy” and other incomprehensible society changing trends and theories, we also need to understand how a small organisation can prepare itself and start making small steps to be relevant and competitive.
