Sustainability in Packaging Latin America

16-18 August, 2023
Santiago, Chile

SustPack Latin America is heading to Santiago, Chile!

AUGUST 16 - 18, 2023 | SANTIAGO, CHILE

Returning for its 3rd year, Sustainability in Packaging Latin America will take place this August 16-18 in Santiago, Chile. This year, the event will bring together the entire supply chain within the packaging industry, collaborating and discussing current issues, regulatory updates, reuse and refill examples in the marketplace, alternative materials and fibers, plastic innovation and more.
Beginning on Wednesday, August 16th, we will hold a pre-conference workshop focused on Compostable Options for Latin America, a panel on Improving Packaging Sustainability, better understanding what is considered a “clean stream” for a composter and innovations in paper packaging and recyclability.
The following 2 days will cover a variety of topics, bringing together representatives from across the Latin America region. Attendees can expect to hear from:
Francisca Aguayo Armijo, Ph.D. | Senior International Affairs Officer and Negotiator, Chile Ministry of the Environment
Rodrigo Sagaceta | General Manager, GIRO Chile
Carlos Ludlow-Palafox | CEO, enval
Mariana Soto Urzúa | General Manager, CENEM

The 2023 agenda preview is live and more agenda announcements are coming soon!


This flagship packaging event regularly brings together representatives from across the entire packaging value chain, including brand owners, retailers, packaging converters, manufacturers, suppliers, recyclers, and more, to facilitate industry collaboration, support the sharing of ideas, explore innovative solutions, and deliver upon the collective promise of increased sustainability within the packaging industry.

Following a successful event held in 2022, we look forward to seeing everyone next year, as we continue to explore recent innovations and uncover new opportunities that are helping to make sustainable packaging a commercial reality.
