Sustainability in Packaging Latin America

2022 Date and Location
Coming Soon

Join us live and in-person in 2022!

Smithers is pleased to announce Sustainability in Packaging Latin America will be returing to a live, in-person event taking place in the Latin American region this upcoming year.

The 2021 Online Workshop Covered

As consumer purchasing trends continue to shift towards online ordering, the need for new and innovative packaging solutions is more apparent than ever before. Consumers today are actively searching for a seamless omnichannel experience, with access to products and packaging that are not only more sustainable, but also reduce the amount of effort required to minimize their impact on the global environment. With these trends in mind, one of the most important functions of packaging will be increased sustainability. This push towards sustainable practices for packaging and a circular economy remains a key influencer, focal point, and primary benchmark for the packaging supply chain in all regions of the world - with associated costs, material sourcing, and available technologies presenting as both existing barriers to entry and exciting opportunities for continued innovation and industry growth.

Throughout Latin America, consumers are seeking alternative packaging options that are easily recyclable and biodegradable, as traditional plastic packaging continues to lose favor and lack support as a sustainable material option. In order to maintain a competitive edge and move towards an increasingly circular economy in the Latam region, it is crucial for companies to take action and incorporate tangible sustainability goals that address the expressed desires and shifting demands of the consumer.

This workshop will bring to light how the industry can work together to tackle these key issues, including:

  • The Future of Plastics and Recycling
  • Emerging Sustainable Materials in Packaging
  • Circular Economy and Design for Environment
  • Trends and Innovations – Future Outlook of the Packaging Industry
  • New Models to Reduce or Replace Packaging
  • Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)
  • End of Life Management - Packaging and Policies
