During a period in time when new challenges arise daily, concerns around the global pursuit of environmental sustainability could have—and can still—fall by the wayside. This two-part series of UnPACKed with PMMI podcasts provides a look at the overarching effect of the global pandemic on packaging sustainability, how it has impacted industry efforts to increase sustainability and what companies can do to maintain a path towards a more sustainable future. It also provides a look at how one major packaging company is managing its ambitious sustainability goals.
Part one features Donna Ritson, president of DDR Communications, as she shares her findings from PMMI’s Packaging Sustainability – A Changing Landscape report and offers insights that will help manufacturers continue to drive sustainability initiatives.
Part two offers a very compelling case for making economic sense out of sustainability at any packaging operation. Featuring Graham Packaging’s Chief Sustainability Officer, Tracee Auld, hear how the global packaging giant is managing its ambitious sustainability goals, including a pledge to make its full line of packaging 100 percent recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025.
