Why join our Round Table Talks

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 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. 

Talk #02/2022 „Design for Recycling“ in Packaging: Buzzword or real value?

Webcast (english) | April 28th, 2022 | 16.00 - 17.00 CET

Whilst many of us are familiar with the technical jargon of today, do we achieve the results set out by (“just using”) these key phrases? And with so many differences throughout the global recycling infrastructure and regulations – is it possible to have a global outlook on these topics? Furthermore, what impact does this have when considering design or redesign of packaging? Is the simple switch to more eco-friendly material enough to create a sustainable solution? Or does it make much more sense to have a holistic view on the complete life cycle of the packaging (and the product within)?

We explore the complexities of consideration from multiple perspectives together with our panellists and try to untangle what is fashionable and what is really effective in the journey towards net zero. And where to start most effectively.
