Why join our Round Table Talks & papinars

Sustainability and circular economy are the leading ways to a brighter future. But what is really sustainable? Which loops are really closed? What eco-friendly solutions are already available today – and what awaits us tomorrow?

Based on 175 years of experience and know-how in 100% recycling-based paper and packaging solutions we at LEIPA now share our knowledge when it comes to sustainable and innovative solutions.

Together with our guest speakers and coaches we will address important questions, shedding light on topics from different viewpoints: From the manufacturer and their suppliers, to the brand owner and packaging designer, to consumers, research and education. 

Inspiration for Innovation & Transformation. 

Our last event: Round Table Talk #04/2022 The most wonderful time of the year: The countdown to Christmas

From Black Friday to Christmas itself, the weeks leading up to the big day are filled with parcels arriving at doorsteps around the world or presents bought in all the stores. What unites them? They mostly need packaging. Some packaging match the size of the presents and are sustainable because of the use of recycled materials and/or are recyclable themselves, others are unfortunately rather less environmentally considerate.

But it is not only about the box! It’s about this magical unboxing experience, the joy of the gift, and also the chance to surprise consumers in a very special way as a brand owner during this experience. We explore the world of e commerce from packaging design, material choice right through to personalisation.

Our panellists discuss the latest megatrends, the coolest innovations and what makes Christmas (and packaging) so unique!
