A Sustainable Business and a Sustainable Planet — at FORUM 2023

Today’s converters are in deep waters. Recent research shows that 79 percent of converters see sustainability as an opportunity while only 3 percent feel at risk. However, almost 100 percent of them are uncertain for multiple reasons:

  • 76 percent don’t know enough about legislations
  • 54 percent are not sure the way to manage investments
  • 49 percent fear substitution or competitive pressure
  • 35 percent are not sure how to discover new opportunities
  • 37 percent are uncertain about customer requirements
  • 27 percent don’t know if sustainable packaging will fit with their technology or product portfolio
  • And only 12 percent of converters have formulated a clear sustainability strategy

Join Julian Fernandez and Justin Green as their panel of experts examines waste and energy opportunities. They will discuss how legislation is driving change while hearing directly from a converter that has already started walking this journey.
