SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING SUMMIT

Mobilizing the leaders of innovation and collaboration

13th-14th September 2022


The leading international forum to drive sustainability in packaging

Sustainable transformation in packaging requires system-level change and a willingness for every stakeholder to embrace a new mindset. The Sustainable Packaging Summit in Lisbon (organised by Packaging Europe) will mobilize FMCG leaders, innovators, NGOs, regulators and recyclers to assess how we can remove friction on the path to sustainability, unlock investment, and assess the next challenges, dilemmas and opportunities.

Working with our Advisory Board, months of thought and preparation have gone into conceiving a different kind of event, with a mission to bring together leaders and thinkers from within and outside industry to focus frankly on the next challenges we must face and the areas where we can collectively do better. Join us to participate in dialogue with the biggest names around packaging sustainability, at a summit that aims to drive concrete outcomes, impacts and partnerships.

How can we improve our trajectory in relation to our circular economy targets? Are we adopting a low-carbon path to circularity? What would a step-change in our progress toward a sustainable FMCG packaging landscape require?

If you’re ready to contribute to setting the agenda for sustainable transformation, you’re welcome to join us for discussion, networking, and mutual education on the inspiring backdrop of the Pestana Palace in Lisbon.
