Resource release: Key findings from SBN’s 2020 Plastic Packaging Masterclass

Join us online to launch the resource from our 2020 Plastic Packaging Masterclass, that was held in late 2020.

The resource outlines where we are now and what we all need to do to contribute to a circular economy for plastic packaging that works in New Zealand.

We’ll introduce some of the key findings, as well as have an update on government actions in plastic packaging from the Ministry for the Environment. You’ll hear from:

  • Liz Butcher, Ministry for the Environment
  • Kelly McClean, Foodstuffs NZ
  • Jemma McCowan, New Zealand King Salmon
  • thinkstep

There will be the opportunity for a Q&A with our panellists at the conclusion of presentations.

Plastic Packaging Masterclass 2020 is a part of SBN’s Packaging Circular Innovation Programme and is presented in partnership with New Zealand King Salmon, thinkstep and Foodstuffs NZ. This work builds on the 2019 Masterclass series and on SBN’s report, New Zealand’s Plastic Packaging System – an initial circular economy diagnosis.

The masterclasses are centred around a representative group, or cohort, of leading packaged goods suppliers committed to improving the circularity of New Zealand’s packaging. The aim is to help packaged goods suppliers make more informed packaging decisions and navigate towards 2025 packaging commitments – that all plastic packaging is 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable in practice and at scale by 2025.
