Panel Discussion: Future packaging, recycling & the circular economy

18 May 2022
Room 219/220, Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre
MID MORNING SESSION: Sustainability and the Circular Economy

There is both disruption and opportunity for the processing and packaging industry when it comes to sustainability. With new regulations coming into effect in Australia, it’s critical to be agile: innovating and adapting to increasingly changing regulatory and consumer needs and providing progressive solutions to help Australia minimise its waste.

  • What is the packaging industry’s responsibility when it comes to waste and how is it tracking?
  • What steps can businesses take to shift to a circular economy from design to operational systems?
  • What opportunities for growth and collaboration are out there?
  • How do we change consumer behaviour through packaging recycling messaging?
