Are You Going to Sustpack 2016?


By Barbara Fowler, Sustpack Conference Director


If you are a sustainable packaging professional, there are many reasons why SustPack 2016 should be on your calendar this year. Whether it's the 50+ presentations from over 60 speakers, the three interactive workshops or the six sustainability tours being offered, SustPack will allow you to share your passion and gain new insights with more than 450 sustainable packaging colleagues.

Taking place in Chicago, a city actively putting forward initiatives to preserve the environment, reduce waste and control energy consumption, SustPack will cover timely topics around sustainability goal setting, the circular economy, an in-depth panel discussion on whether or not the industry is heading into a waste management crisis and a session solely focused on cities that lead and what it take to lead. Chris Wheat, Chief Sustainability Officer for the City of Chicago will open the conference and highlight the sustainability successes that make Chicago a sustainability city that leads.
