One of the biggest challenges to a more sustainable world is the issue of waste pollution both in landfill and in our seas. Much of this pollution is from packaging.
This is a huge issue because pollution can damage fragile ecosystems, killing ocean life, entangling animals and in some cases creating harmful chemicals.
However, many in the packaging industry are facing this challenge, using innovation to aid radical change, aiming towards a more sustainable and ecologically friendly world.
New forms of packaging are now being used and developed that are fully biodegradable and compostable – meaning that they can rapidly and safely decompose and do not present any danger to wildlife, ecosystems, or human health.
Business leaders in the packaging industry are responding to increasing consumer demand to make their processes sustainable, with many aiming for a “low carbon – high recycling society”. These leaders are also implementing the principles of a circular economy – recycling and the elimination of waste.
These topics are the subject of Executive TV’s latest programme, “Sustainable Packaging” with expert analysis from key figures in the industry.
Featured in this programme will be:
Futamura Group are an operation of different manufacturing divisions around the world. Futamura Group are global leaders in innovation, and the use of sustainable materials and new technologies.
BBIA (Bio – Based and Biodegradable Industries Association) are an organisation representing companies involved in producing biodegradable products for the benefit of the environment.
‘Sustainable Packaging’ will be first broadcast on our usual channel, SKY Digital 181, Sunday 12th March @ 10.15 (am) and then again on Sunday 30th April @ 10.15 (am)
After the initial broadcast, the programme will be available at http://www.executivetv.org/ with the rest of our digital archive.
