Siegwerk Druckfarben SPECIAL SERIES
Packaging plays an essential role in modern life, but the vast majority of packaging produced globally is not recycled. As consumers grow increasingly concerned about the world’s waste problem — and forward-looking governments, companies and investors set policies to cut their waste footprints down to size — it’s time to transfer packaging to a new way of management that decouples economic development from using finite resources and leaving behind hard-to-recycle waste.
In this series sponsored by Siegwerk Druckfarben, a global manufacturer of printing inks and coatings for packaging applications, we’ll take a closer look at what it takes to build a circular economy for packaging. We’ll review existing solutions that move packaging away from a linear and toward a circular model, and we’ll explore how the industry can continue shifting mindsets and systems in pursuit of circularity.
