Greenwashing forbidden – Three examples of sustainable packaging solutions
The market is flooded with packaging solutions that claim to be ecological, but are they really the best in terms of sustainability? What recent projects have actually helped to reduce the impact of packaging on the environment? As part of the Sustainability section of the 10th OBALKO congress, we are pleased to present three truly sustainable packaging solutions. Furthermore, we have enlisted the help of Professor Vladimír Kočí, the head of the Institute of Sustainability and Product Ecology of the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague and one of the leading experts in LCA studies, which try to reveal/calculate the actual environmental impacts of a given solution. Professor Kočí will not only approve the projects before they are added to the conference program, but he himself will moderate the section and provide his insight on the projects by means of a discussion with the presenters.
