Packaging webinar: Hero or villain in a circular economy?


Packaging webinar: Hero or villain in a circular economy?

The circular economy doesn’t automatically mean reducing packaging. When used correctly, good packaging design can be a part of the solution and provide an environmentally sound option for some products. Life cycle and circular economy thinking allow for better design and decision-making to make packaging a truly sustainable sector.

In a 30-minute webinar, titled ‘Packaging: Hero or villain in a circular economy?’, Dr Helen Lewis, a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), and Barbara Nebel, CEO of thinkstep-anz, will discuss the tools to assess best circular practice for products and materials, and share circular economy case studies.

The webinar will take place on 23 June 2020, from 1–1.30 pm. The webinar will address Cradle to Cradle certification, LCA and the approaches to avoid shifting burdens from across the life-cycle of a product.

Dr Helen Lewis runs her own consulting business, Helen Lewis Research, and provides strategic advice to a range of industry and government clients on product stewardship and packaging. Lewis also has a PhD in product stewardship.

Nebel provides a range of sustainability services from strategy and materiality assessments through to detailed LCAs and Cradle to Cradle projects. Nebel has worked with organisations in New Zealand, Australia, Asia and Europe, linking sustainability with business value.
