Paper and the Circular Economy – 18th May at 14:00 (CEST)

The first panel discussion will focus on the circular economy challenges and opportunities facing paper packaging. What is the roadmap to increased circularity in the paper economy, and what strategies and systems changes should stakeholders across the value chain and collaborative initiatives such as 4evergreen adopt to accelerate that journey? 


  • Alexey Vishtal (Fibre-based packaging team leader, Nestlé)
  • Tiina Pursula (VP Sustainability, Stora Enso)
  • Dina Epifanova (Sustainability Transformation Manager, Tetra Pak)
  • Jori Ringman (Director General, Cepi)
  • Alan Potts (Design & Innovations Director, DS Smith)
  • Moderated by Tim Sykes (Brand Director, Packaging Europe)

At the end of the discussion, the panelists will take some time to answer your questions. If you’d like to take part in the Q&A, please submit your question here.

Futureproofing for the Changing Policy & Regulation Landscape – 21st May at 11:00 (CEST) 

The next session of the week will be the first in a series of live, interactive Zoom discussions taking place over the coming months.

In the first episode, we are joined by expert panellists Jocelyne Ehret, Tracy Sutton and Francesca Stevens to find out why it is crucial for packaging and FMCG companies to anticipate regulations. What are the considerations with regard to factors such as labelling policies, EPR, tax legislation and so on, and what actions must companies take to make sure they are futureproofed?

In the meantime, there’s plenty to keep you occupied on the virtual Summit platform – from watching sessions on-demand to making use of the networking feature, which lets attendees contact each other and meet up virtually.
