NB: we have five finalists in this category rather than the usual four due to two submissions in fourth place attaining exactly the same total score.

The winners in each category and the overall 2020 Sustainability Awards winner will be announced at our Sustainable Packaging Summit, now taking place as a virtual event, in the autumn.

Over the coming weeks look out for more details about each of the 30 finalists, and perspectives on sustainable packaging from our Sustainability Awards 2020 judges and sponsors.
