Maximising the sustainability of glass packaging

13 September 2023

Want to keep up to date with the latest developments in sustainable glass packaging?

This in-person, 1-day event (held in conjunction with Glass Technology Services) includes a mix of talks from expert speakers, discussions, and networking with people from across the supply chain. 

If you work for a manufacturer, brand owner, or retailer and are responsible for improving the sustainability credentials of glass packaging, then this event is for you.

Delegates will learn about the hot topics relating to sustainable design, recycled content, recyclability, and rightweighting – along with the future technology options we can utilise to meet net zero targets.

Join us on the 13 September at Tankersley Manor, Sheffield to expand your network, exchange ideas, and discover innovative approaches to promoting sustainability within the packaging industry.

We look forward to welcoming you on the day.
