IoPP_webinar_image_252pxAs part of the partnership with the IoPP all AIP Members will have access to a ‘Sustainability in Packaging: Global Knowledge, Local Solutions’ webinar on the 16th of April for Free.

Questions about how to address sustainability continue to arise more frequently for brands, particularly when it comes to finding the most sustainable packaging solutions. But the answers are not often clear cut or ‘one size fits all’ as they’re impacted by localised concerns such as consumer behaviour, government regulations, and retailer guidelines. Sustainability challenges are global in nature, and thereby require brands to apply global knowledge and expertise as a method of creating localised solutions.

SGK Business Development Director, Stephen ‘Marshy’ Marshman and Anthem Brand Design Director, Marcel Verhaaf will explore how packaging professionals can address sustainable packaging challenges by applying a global perspective to local solutions.
