Leading sustainability data expert Ecoveritas will join organisations including WRAP, OPRL, the Co-Op, and Constantia Flexibles at this summer’s FFP Sustainability Event, held on 27 June in Northampton.
The free event, billed as an enlightening and progressive look at the entire lifecycle of sustainable packaging, brings together packaging professionals from across Europe to hear insights from some of the industry’s foremost experts. The first FFP Sustainability Event to be held in person since before the pandemic, it takes place against a backdrop of a swathe of new packaging legislation and a deepening climate crisis.
Kathy Illingworth, Head of Sustainability & Consulting at Ecoveritas spoke in anticipation of a lively event, saying, “This event could not have come at a more opportune time for the business community. Between the somewhat chaotic implementation of new measures like Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) reform and the delayed Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) in Scotland, and the creeping threat of climate catastrophe, the importance of having a clear packaging strategy has never been greater.
“Uncertainty is the word of the moment; uncertainty around future regulations, what it all means for businesses, and the future of our planet itself,” Illingworth continued. “We’ll be bringing data and insights gathered from working with some of the world’s largest brands, retailers, and supply chains to provide attendees with the knowledge and tools they need to chart a course through this uncertain landscape.”
The event, held at the Hilton Hotel in the Collingtree area of Northampton, will discuss a diverse range of topics including EPR legislation, recycled polymers and other material choices, waste streams, brand objectives and challenges, and Ecoveritas’ speciality – data collection.
“We can’t ever know exactly what the future holds, but we can prepare for it. The FFP Sustainability Event will prepare attendees for almost anything as we strive to achieve a circular economy together,” added Illingworth.
The FFP Sustainability Event will be held at the Hilton Northampton on 27 June, beginning at 9:30 am. It is free to attend, but numbers are limited.
