Lifecycle Assessments for Packaging: What You Need to Know

Prashant Jagtap  (Founder, President & CEO, Trayak)

Date: Wednesday, December 2

Time: 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

Track: Advancements in Packaging

Vault Recording: TBD

In the packaging space sustainability (and more recently, circularity) has gone from a “nice-to-have” to a veritable requirement. The first step to designing a packaging solution that is sustainable is to perform a lifecycle assessment (LCA). Attend this session to learn:

  • How to execute lifecycle assessments for packaging
  • How to identify problem areas in your supply chain and available solutions to ensure sustainability and profitability
  • How to integrate the findings of your LCA into your packaging lines, from materials sourcing to conversion to distribution.
