The first meeting is scheduled for April 18, following the DuPont Packaging Innovation Awards celebration event in Wilmington, DE. The consortium will meet again for two additional two-day sessions, in the summer and in autumn.?β€œWe are seeking participation from companies with a global sustainability focus and sustainable packaging leaders to participate in this one-of-a-kind leadership journey. The current and future sustainable packaging landscape is not clear, and this new, multi-sponsored study will provide significant insight and direction for participants to develop and deliver new value through sustainable packaging initiatives,” said Mike Richmond, president, PTIS. β€œWe encourage all industries across the value chain to consider joining this premier program and participating in our three collaborative meetings. Leadership in and knowledge about sustainable packaging will be critical for company growth in the future,” Richmond said. ?The range of topics that will be studied include: defining the 2008–2018 roadmap; the changing value chain; triple bottom line thinking; consumer, channel and technology insight drivers and levers; transparency, metrics and tools; and science and technology behind sustainable packaging. The program will include development of actionable and specific future scenarios and projections, new drivers, as well as implications for leaders today and in the future. In order to provide the best result for the sponsors, participation is being limited to 20 companies. ?For more information about participating in the consortium, or about the program, contact: Todd Bukowski, (734) 972-4175 [email protected] or ?Susan Homan, (302) 992-2147 [email protected].?
