Sustainability and Product Safety in the Folding Carton Sector

ECMA Seminar 2009

Sustainability and Product Safety in the Folding Carton Sector
2 June 2009 - Sheraton Brussels Airport Hotel

In recent years, sustainability and public health issues have become top priorities for consumer goods manufacturers, retailers and in EU policy making. As a result, packaging companies are more and more often approached to answer questions related to the CO2 impact of their product and processes, the suitability of specific materials for food packaging, their compliance with Good Manufacturing Practice, etc.

To allow ECMA members to improve their understanding of the issues concerned and their impact on carton businesses’ daily practice, ECMA organised a seminar focusing on sustainability and product safety.

The seminar was aimed at company managers and executives in charge of product management, quality management, environment and/or health and safety.

A range of expert keynote speakers had been invited to provide participants, in one day and at an easily accessible and central location, with in-depth and hands-on knowledge how to position their companies in customer relations as partners committed to sustainable and safe manufacture.

With 4 presentation sessions and 3 discussion /question rounds included in the programme and the involvement of Pro Carton’s former president Mike Clark as the seminar moderator, no question remained unanswered.
