Sustainability in Packaging 2014 March 5 – 7 in Orlando

PIRA 2At we like to think of reusable packaging as the epicenter of the packaging universe, although there are many who would position it within the larger context of sustainable packaging solutions.

Sustainability in Packaging is indeed the theme  for this upcoming event, Sustainability in Packaging 2014, sponsored by Smithers Pira, in association with Packaging Digest and Pharmaceutical & Medical Packaging News. The conference will take place March 5-7, 2014, at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld. More than 300 leaders in the sustainability and packaging supply chains are expected to come together to discuss the opportunities, challenges and solutions that will lead to packaging innovations that improve sustainability and the bottom line.

Planned sessions at Sustainability in Packaging include key sustainability and innovation trends around flexible packaging for better end of life scenarios; success stories and developments in fiber packaging; sustainable packaging sourcing security; and developments in extended producer responsibility. This year’s program will include a number of new topics including marine debris case studies and policy; sustainability in frozen and the cold chain; and an investor’s forum (Shark Tank) to find the next great idea in sustainable packaging.

And not to be forgotten, there will be a session on reusable packaging. Cindy Doman of Herman Miller, winner of the 2012 Excellence in Reusable Packaging award from the Reusable Packaging Association, will be one of the presenters. Read her interview with Sustainability in Packaging.
