OVER 200 INDUSTRY MEMBERS AND NGOs SET TO ATTEND FPA SEMINAR
The 2018 FPA Environment Seminar taking place on 24 January at Horwood House, Near Milton Keynes has attracted over 200 industry, NGO and trade association representatives. With a line of excellent speakers: Lord Deben, Elena Polisano of Greenpeace, Libby Peake of Green Alliance, Professor Margaret Bates of Northampton University, a compostables and biodegradables session with David Newman, CEO of the BBIA and Charlie Troudsell, Chairman of the Organics Recycling Group, Chiara Covone, Divisional Innovation Director of DS Smith, Nick Brown of Coca Cola European Partners, Peter Maddox, WRAP’s director of Goverment Programmes, Anne Hitch of Recoup and Peter Goodwin, Director of Closed Loop Environmental Solutions.
Executive Director Martin Kersh said: “The FPA seminar has captured the attention of the packaging industry and NGOs, particularly over the last few weeks with the publication of the Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan, a series of announcements by retailers, publication of the Environmental Audit Committee reports into bottles and cups and daily headlines on packaging. Greenpeace and Green Alliance accepted our invitation to speak is very timely and we look forward to exploring common grounds as we seek more recycling, particularly on the go and a reduction in litter. This is a critical time for packaging and a keynote address from Lord Deben underpins the FPA’s lead in campaigning to reform the UK’s packaging producer responsibility system.
A great amount of interest has been expressed in the debate on compostables and biodegradables and with a line up of such high profile packaging and waste management experts this seminar is a huge opportunity to discuss how the packaging supply chain will progress to deal with the issues the media and politicians are raising.”
