Reuse as the foundation for more rewarding packaging experiences
Packaging Innovations Theatre – 12:00 pm
The transition to reusable packaging systems is key to reducing packaging waste and CO2 footprint. To successfully drive adoption of reuse behaviours requires incentivising consumers with a more valuable pack experience than offered today. Reuse, therefore, presents an opportunity to reimagine packaging in a new light.

Plastics bad, other materials good? New frontiers in tackling the UK’s packaging materials footprint
Packaging Innovations Theatre – 1:30 pm
In recent years, there has been increasing concern about our consumption of single-use packaging and particularly the impacts of plastic waste. The response from businesses has centred primarily on plastics – elimination, reduction, use of recycled content and recyclability, and many switches to other materials.
Although this may placate anti-plastic consumers, the media and NGOs campaigning on plastics, this approach risks shifting environmental and social burdens to the alternative material’s supply chain and can result in equally bad or worse impacts.
This interactive webinar will challenge you to challenge your perspectives around the overall impacts of the supply chains for both plastics and other materials – so that you can consider the best packaging materials for your product and not perpetuate the narrative that all plastics are bad and all other materials are good.
During the webinar, you will learn about the WWF and Tesco’s findings in their new study, The UK’s Packaging Materials Footprint, which highlights both social and environmental impacts associated with the supply chains of a range of materials.
You will also then hear a presentation of the IGD’s Sustainable Packaging Systems initiative and have the opportunity to take part in a live Q&A with our panel.
