Henkel announces the third annual Sustainability Days, a global virtual conference for sustainability in packaging and consumer goods. Sustainability Days 2022 presents the trends, challenges, and opportunities on the path to sustainability in those industries. The free digital event provides a forum to hear from industry experts, and to meet and share best practices with peers from around the world. Henkel’s conference will be held from November 30th to December 1st.
“We are excited for this year’s edition of Henkel Sustainability Days, as it continues to build on the successful, fruitful exchanges that we’ve had with our partners along the packaging value chain,” said Corbett Wallace, corporate vice president–Consumer Goods Adhesives, Henkel. “We want to continue growing this event so that we can bring together global leaders from the industry to discuss crucial sustainability-focused topics and come up with tangible ways we can make a difference.”
The conference has four main content tracks:
- Circularity: Sourcing of materials and better design
- Footprint: Impact of both upstream and downstream operations and how best to measure them
- Regulations and Reporting: The global context, technology issues, and the opportunities and impacts, including taxes and financials
- Trends, Challenges & Opportunities: Sustainability strategies, embracing new materials, food waste, food safety, and eCommerce
Within the virtual auditorium, participants can listen to live presentations and panel discussions and take part in Q&A sessions with industry thought leaders or join live workshops with industry peers. The virtual networking areas will provide further opportunities to meet up, share experiences, and kick start collaborations.
The two-day event is structured to provide a comprehensive program that’s available and relevant to interested parties from across the global industry. Day one will focus on Europe and the Americas, with live broadcasts streamed from Henkel Studios in Düsseldorf, Germany, and Stamford, Connecticut. Day two will provide content tailored to Asia and Europe, with live broadcasts from Düsseldorf and Shanghai, China. For those unable to participate live, content from Henkel Sustainability Days 2022–and all sessions from previous years’ events are available on demand.
