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 2023 with over 600 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.
