Climate change: what role does the packaging play?
150 150 admin-f3
On the occasion of the UN World Climate Conference, Forest For Future organized a round table to deepen the potential for a rethinking of the packaging life cycle, as a contribution to reducing its impact on climate change.

Reduction of consumption; recycling; reuse. These are the three pillars on which the circular economy rests. A new way of understanding the entire supply chain and a key element for a management able to protect the planet’s resources and reduce the impact on climate change. In this scenario, what role does the packaging play? Which solutions can you take to reduce the impact on climate change?

These will be the themes that will animate the debate of the round table “Sustainable packaging and conservation” to be held on Thursday 6 December in Room Vienna in the framework of COP24. The round table organized by Forest For Future – an association that promotes a balance that goes from the conservation and sustainable exploitation of forests, to the processing of materials, to the dissemination of sustainable paper products and education for proper recycling – will be inspired by Italian studies conducted by the Bocconi University and will be attended by industry experts, institutional delegates and speakers of large international companies.

Speakers include:
• Francesco Bertolini, professor of Public Management and Policy at the Bocconi School of Business and Administration and President of Forest for Future
• Christophe De Boissoudy, General Manager, Novamont France
• Librian Angraeni, Asia Pulp & Paper Deputy Director of Sustainability & Stakeholder Engagement
• Roberta Ianna, Senior Advisor for Direzione per lo Sviluppo Sostenibile, il Clima e l’Energia , Italian Ministry of Environment.

Francesco Bertolini, President of the Forest For Future Association declared: “The climate emergency now sees us as protagonists. We are called to address the issue proactively by rethinking all processes, starting from a design that takes into account the beginning of the life cycle of the packaging itself as a product. The stakes are high and it is important that those who have developed skills, knowledge and networks in the sphere of sustainability and the circular economy collaborate and promote an extended vision of corporate social responsibility.
