The most serious, rigorous and prestigious international competition for sustainability in packaging is back for another year.

The Sustainability Awards sets the agenda on best practice, turns the spotlight on the most important areas of R&D, and helps separate greenwash from the innovations that make a genuine difference.

The awards are independently judged by an expert jury representing a cross-section of the international packaging value chain, including leading brand owners and retailers, sustainability organisations, waste management, academia and industry experts.

Each year the competition sees ever-growing engagement, assessing submissions from start-ups and global brands by the same, carefully considered criteria.

For more information, and to submit your entry entirely free of charge, visit the Sustainability Awards website. Full instructions and rules can be found in the Essential Information section.

Some key dates:

Submissions close on the 14th of February.

Finalists will be announced on the 6th of April.

The Sustainability Awards ceremony and Sustainable Packaging Summit take place from the 24th-25th of May.
