Webinar Invite - November 18th, 2020
SACC-DC is happy to present the first episode of our Sustainability Series:
Sustainble Packaging Featuring The Absolut Company and BillerudKorsnäs.
Wednesday 18th Nov 12 PM EST

The environmental consequences of plastic packaging are causing growing concerns, from their littering and polluting our oceans to their climate impact. Studies show that replacing plastics with wood fibre has a significant promise. Therefore, modern packaging solutions are crucial for reducing our consumption's life cycle emissions as well as maintaining efficient logistics and retailing.

Sweden is proud to have fearless forerunners such as The Absolut Company and BillerudKorsnäs to help our economy switch from fossil to renewable materials. Join us next week to get exclusive insights in their unique partnership in developing the world's first 100 percent recyclable and biodegradable paper bottle. We will hear more about their sustainability strategies to achieve UN Sustainable Development Goals, actions to meet Circular Making goals, development of paper packaging technology and implementation of the paper bottle for carbonated beverages.
