PKN talks... Talking sustainability at APPEX with ecoporium by Ball & Doggett.

In this episode, Lindy Hughson, managing editor and publisher of PKN Packaging News talks to Zaidee Jackson, national business development manager of sustainable packaging for Ball & Doggett, about its ecoporium sustainable packaging resource.

We get an overview of how the ecoporium platform is educating the industry in best adopting sustainable packaging, and its upcoming live presentations at APPEX consisting of 14 speakers who will be discussing the sustainability aspects of design, printing, converting, and manufacturing.

We get a sneak peak into upcoming sessions, which among other things will cover the important role that suppliers play in guiding brand owners, printers, and suppliers to achieve their sustainability initiatives, while ensuring that the material is still fit for purpose, and that the companies involved are prepared to adopt it.

The discussion wraps up with Zaidee giving us an insight into what they’re looking forward to at APPEX, including displaying their fibre-based stand, presenting their team, seeing the new innovations on display, and joining and contributing to panels.
