Packaging Design and Resource Efficiency

Packaging Design and Resource Efficiency

6th December 2017
1300 - 1500

The APDIG, together with the All-Party Parliamentary Sustainable Resources Group (APSRG), will showcase the latest design innovations underpinning food packaging and how innovations in plastics is transforming the food and drink sector. 

Packaging continues to be debated nationally in the news, in homes, in businesses and formally in Parliament. Coffee cup recycling, litter prevention and ocean plastics are all, quite literally at times, under the microscope.

How do we innovate our way forward and to what ends? How can technological solutions help? Where does good design come into play? Is recyclability the only acceptable virtue? How does packaging help consumers in reducing the impacts from food waste? What Parliamentary and voluntary opportunities are there to achieve the UK’s resource efficiency ambitions in the future?

Panellists include: 

  • Baroness Jenkin of Kennington: APSRG Chair
  • Paul Vanston: CEO of INCPEN
  • Dorothy Mackenzie: Chair of Dragon Rouge and non-exec director of the Carbon Trust
  • Marcus Gover: CEO of WRAP
