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 online event in 2020 and with over 500 attendees at the 2019 conference, we are planning on returning to Barcelona to offer attendees face-to-face networking, new solutions and 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.

2021 event highlights include:

  • Hear from companies who are leading in packaging sustainability
  • Discover the solutions to the biggest challenges facing the packaging supply chain, through truly unique sessions on  lack of packaging waste, recycled content in packaging, re-use and refillable models as well as recycling. Presentations will actively provide clarity to these matters and drive the uptake of innovative packaging solutions to prevent packaging waste, increase and improve recyclability and re-use as well as developing new technologies for sorting, collecting and recycling.
  • Connect with new and existing business contacts in our exhibition hall with over 20 suppliers

         "Key event for the packaging industry to come together and discuss                                       solutions to address Sustainability challenges"                            - Packaging Research & Plastics Development Engineer | Dow
