Sustainability is all about choices. But sometimes, those choices have a lot of complexity and subtlety. As we explore processes like Life Cycle Analysis and problems like ocean-bound plastics, we’ll discover all kinds of challenges facing packaging today as well as the opportunities that we have to solve them.


Topics include:

  • The particular problems of electronics and retail packaging and how to bring in new ideas to find solutions
  • Life Cycle Analysis and prioritizing certain aspects of packaging and sustainability goals
  • Examining options to reduce ocean-bound plastics without undermining performance requirements
  • How to evaluate solutions for sustainability, like comparing the effects and benefits of recycled materials versus new materials
