With sustainable consumption increasingly important, readers can learn about the benefits of responsible sourcing in a new PEFC webinar - Creating impact through responsibly-sourced packaging. The webinar is free to attend and will be held on 23rd June at 10.00 a.m. Advance registration will be required to access joining instructions.
The webinar is likely to be of particular interest to retail and brand sustainability/buying teams. It will also provide useful insights for sales/CSR teams of wood-based packaging manufacturers, converters and printers. It will enable participants to better understand how packaging procurement choices impact forest health, biodiversity and the livelihoods of people living and working in the world’s forests. The session will also show how PEFC certification provides responsible sourcing assurances, throughout the supply chain, from forest to final product.
For brand and retailer sustainability and sourcing professionals, the webinar will assist understanding of how sourcing certified packaging can help meet 2020 environmental and social targets. Ideal for packaging manufacturers, converters and printers, the webinar will also provide an introduction to the value proposition of offering certified packaging to customers and some tips to promote corporate investment in certification.
Participants will come away with improved knowledge of the processes behind certification and the PEFC label which provides assurances of responsible sourcing. A Nielsen study found that 73% of global consumers say they would change their consumption habits in order to reduce their environment impact. This means it has never been more important to specify sustainable packaging materials.
