Today, the Better World Collective is hosting their first Innovation Summit: Packaging Transformed.
Aptly timed at the closing of the UK hosted COP26 where world leaders will be making commitments to accelerate climate action, the Better World Collective calls on business leaders to accelerate their sustainable materials innovation by utilising the incredible new technology and solutions that are already available.
During David Attenborough’s address at the Glasgow based event he said,
“A new industrial revolution, powered by millions of sustainable innovations is essential, and is indeed already beginning”.
Better World Collective is excited to play a part in this new industrial revolution by accelerating sustainable innovation and inviting corporate companies with sustainable innovation challenges, as well as startups and SME’s with sustainable solutions, to reach out.
The Packaging Transformed Innovation Summit, held on 10th and 11th November at Angel Court Bank in London, brings together three global corporates who have made commitments to dramatically reduce packaging waste, and a group of innovators with new materials and solutions with the potential to create a better world.
The host for this event is Angel Court in Bank, a building constructed with sustainability at its core. At 300,000 square feet with terraces, sky floors and garden floors. The building is EPC rated A and BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certified with efficient lighting, BMS energy monitoring, heat recovery and water recycling systems - Perfectly located next to Bank station.
Inspiring change through sharing new ideas and curating opportunities for collaboration between those building cutting edge solutions and corporate companies who can help to commercialise and scale them. This summit is designed to create faster adoption and bigger impact.
