The Essentials of Sustainable Packaging Training Course

SGS is the first company accredited by Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) to organize and deliver a Sustainable Packaging training course in Mainland China. Targeted at importers and exporters, supply chain managers, quality control managers, corporate social responsibility (CSR) professionals and packaging professionals, this course presents the key concepts of sustainability and how it can be applied to packaging design.

Sustainable packaging is also known as ‘zero packaging’, ‘green packaging’ or ‘simplified packaging’; it has been the focus of companies and consumers in the past few years. Companies have great incentives for marketing products with reduced packaging, not only on environmental impact and cost savings initiatives, but also due to increasing consumer expectations on reduced-packaging products.

The key sections of the course developed by SGS cover the scope of sustainable packaging, the package development process, packaging design considering the optimisation of materials and energy, closed loop frameworks for sustainable material flows and environmental information on packaging materials. The course also includes practical sections, ‘how-to’ strategies, life cycle assessments of packaging and real-life design and material innovations.

This training course is conducted by the professionals from the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC), Packaging and Technology Integrated Solutions, LLC (PTIS), Global Sustainability Solutions, Inc (GSSI) and the Packaging Association of Canada (PAC). SPC is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting businesses in making products more sustainable, by means of science and resources.
