Sustainable Challenges: How to reduce your Organisations Carbon Footprint
Sponsored by: Elopak
Date: 29 November
Time: London 3PM / New York 10AM
Understanding the Total Lifecycle Assessment for Evaluation
The first part of this session will focus on Elopak's clear goal of how to reduce its environmental impact. Key areas of this webinar will focus on the challenges that packaging companies will face and how to share the responsibility for sustainable development.
The case studies that will be discussed will touch upon how to set second generation targets for CO2 and how Elopak employees are involved in driving the decrease of CO2 reductions. This discussion will also include how all organisations need to improve their own performance in order to reduce global warming, secure biodiversity and well managed forests and ensure recycling of beverage cartons.
In the second part of the presentation Rasmus Hansson, General Secretary of WWF Norway will discuss how WWF and Elopak have recently cooperated to set the second generation targets for 2020. Another focus point of the second part of this presentation will be about the key drivers to reduce environmental impact by design and the evaluation of the carbon footprint in the value chain.
We hope you can join us for this presentation and learn more about the sustainable challenges facing this industry and how to ultimately reduce your carbon footprint within your own organisation.
