Sustainable Packaging Industry-Academia Engagement Table

You have a unique opportunity to be part of a discussion seeking input on how to promote collaboration between Manitoba’s post-secondary educational institutions and industries in Sustainable Packaging and Systems. 

Many manufacturers are looking at their packaging to reduce costs as well as creating less waste including negative environmental impacts. Sustainability has been a motivation for many consumers, industry, government, and research for decades. 

Join us as we explore these opportunities and bring together a diverse group of industry and academia to explore the current state of our Sustainability System. With the upcoming ban on single-use plastics, carbon tax, and extended producer, supplier, and manufacturer responsibility, the business case will change, and soon, the cost of disposal will exceed the cost of these new options. To move past our current state, many steps are required to ensure that Manitoba companies remain competitive and future-ready, we need to align on innovation and collaborate to ensure that Manitoba is a leader in this transition.
