Our vision is to inspire a world where no packaging harms the planet.
We are pleased to present to you our new region based African newsletter. We’d like to use this opportunity to discuss some of the sustainable initiatives happening and progressing in Africa at the moment, both within the Paper & Packaging sector and further afield within the sustainable sector.
Africa is home to some of the fastest growing companies in the world, and this provides excellent opportunities to implement sustainable solutions. Currently attitudes towards Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles are lagging behind. However, the incoming generation are motivated by a greater sustainable “purpose” which resonates well with investors seeking businesses with long-term sustainable strategies.
There’s no doubt that plastic and foil packaging are coming to an end and that the future lies in sustainable food packaging! Not only is responsible packaging needed to protect the food itself from damage and spoiling, it also has the ability to reduce food losses, boost the green economy and minimise the impact of waste on the planet.
