Featured Session: How To Get More Materials Recovered
Three noteworthy organizations have sprung up in the last year, all aimed at boosting packaging recycling rates through industry-driven initiatives. This compelling panel features key members of each organization who will share these group's goals and strategies for getting more materials recycled.
Under the banner of Action to Accelerate Recycling, 90 corporate, trade group, environmental and governmental leaders met in February to devise a plan to push packaging recycling levels higher. With such an impressive array of powerful members from all across the supply chain, this voluntary, action oriented initiative has the potential to drastically impact the national recycling landscape. But how do they plan to achieve their ambitious goals? Learn more about this brand-new endeavor from Beth Schmitt, director of recycling programs for Alcoa.
AMERIPEN is a new packaging trade organization with a special focus on how public policies impact the packaging value chain. Representing the broad interests of the industry — including raw material producers, packaging manufacturers, packaging users and fillers, retailers and material recovery organizations — this new organization is poised to become an integral center for influencing environmental packaging issues related to legislation and regulation.
Recycling Reinvented is a brand-new nonprofit organization committed to advancing recycling rates of waste packaging and printed material in the United States through an extended producer responsibility (EPR) model. The product of a dialogue process initiated by Nestle Waters North America and convened by Future 500, you don't want to miss Recycling Reinvented's executive director, Paul Gardner, as he outlines how the new organization will strive for brand owners of packaging and printed materials to cover the cost of managing their products.
