Sustainable packaging is at the forefront of the war on waste. Today over 50% of all packaging is still sent to landfill. But, businesses are recognising the urgency to be better. This year, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation assembled more than 100 leading businesses and 50 more other organisations to sign an Extended Producer Responsibility statement. Change is imminent. With consumers and brands finally prioritising the adoption of more sustainable solutions, the time has never been better for planet-forward material innovation.
This November, Packaging Transformed will bring together five global corporates making public commitments to dramatically reduce packaging waste, and, fifteen innovators inventing new materials with the potential to create a better world. The summit aims to inspire change through the sharing of new ideas and creating opportunities for collaboration between those creating cutting edge solutions and corporates who can help to commercialise and scale them. Leading to faster adoption and bigger impact.

Better World Collective Summits evoke change through the power of collaboration. Held throughout the year, these two-day summits each focus on a critical theme, with the focus this coming November being Packaging.
The ultimate goal of the Better World Collective Summits are to empower businesses to spark further projects with compatible startups. Whether that’s running a challenge to find circular solutions to your waste streams or piloting packaging technology.
Before the summit, we will invite you to a diagnostic where we can explore what this might look like. After the summit, we will support you and your startup innovators in designing and implementing your own bespoke sustainable initiatives.
