March 22, 2017
2:00pm-2:45pm EST

In this webinar we will explore Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and how this methodology can facilitate the design of more sustainable transport packages.

We will discuss LCA misperceptions and discuss the role that a total packaging systems approach should play when considering:
•Corporate Sustainability Goals
•Tool Selection/ Implementation
•Sustainable Design Strategies
•Package Design and Concept Development.
•Data Driven Package Optimization
