About Sustainability in Packaging Europe

One of the most important functions of packaging will be increased sustainability. This push towards sustainable practices for packaging and a circular economy is a key influencer, focal point and primary benchmark for the packaging supply chain.

To address these future sustainability requirements, Smithers created Sustainability in Packaging Europe -  the only dedicated European packaging event designed to offer a 360 perspective on the key challenges and solutions the supply chain are faced with to evolve towards a circular economy.

After a hugely successful event in 2022 with over 570 attendees, this event offers attendees face-to-face networking, new solutions and the opportunity to create lasting partnerships with industry peers all in one place. 

Be part of this recognised global community of packaging professionals online driving forward a circular economy within the supply chain.
