About Sustainability Central

Has sustainability become the center of attention for your brand’s future? Come to Sustainability Central to expand your thinking on what packaging sustainability means. Learn from expert speakers, explore interactive content, and discover actionable sustainable solutions in manufacturing, materials, design, and more. Walk away inspired and empowered to make progress toward a more sustainable future for your brand.

Sustainability Central will highlight the current state of 6 key areas of packaging sustainability and will ask “what if” questions encouraging attendees to think about how these areas influence their own work. The exhibit will focus on meeting attendees where they are, stating the facts, and ultimately being a resource for those who are looking to learn more about making their brands more sustainable.

The 6 key areas include:

  • Design
  • Materials
  • Manufacturing
  • Recovery
  • Logistics
  • Data

Additionally, the exhibit will also feature exhibits from universities highlighting their current research projects and how they tie into the 6 key areas of Sustainability Central. Be sure to check-out exhibits from Michigan State University, Indiana State University, Cal-Poly and University of Wisconsin-Stout.

To complement the exhibit, Sustainability Stage (Booth N9967) will offer attendees the opportunity to hear from industry experts on a range of packaging sustainability topics and receive expertise on making their brand more sustainable in the future.

PACK EXPO is dedicated to tracking sustainable packaging materials across our industry. Let us know how your packaging materials are changing by completing this survey and see live, interactive results at Sustainability Central in Las Vegas!
