Connect and Collaborate Across Every Segment of the

Circular Supply Chain

Many consumer packaged goods companies claim their product packaging is recyclable, but they leave the dirty work to other stakeholders downstream. To do their part, brands must go beyond recyclability claims and design packaging that actually is being recycled into valuable post-consumer recycled material. They also need to be paying customers, sourcing this PCR from their materials suppliers and reliably using it in their packaging. 

How can brands transform from passive producers of waste to active participants in a circular economy? They must think outside of their own four walls and embrace a systems approach. 

The Packaging Recycling Summit, presented by Packaging World, engages brands, materials suppliers, reprocessors and materials recovery facilities (MRFs) to shed light on all the links of the circular supply chain, revealing what materials can and will be recycled. By understanding the realities and motivations of each segment of the value chain, all stakeholders can do good and profit from the promise of a circular economy.
