Webinar: The Future of Packaging: Investing in a Sustainable Economy
Currently, over 90% of all disposed plastic material within the United States is not recycled. If present recycling trends continue, by 2050, there will be 12 billion metric tons of plastic in landfills around the world. The global packaging industry has traditionally been one of the largest contributors to this problem. Given that the e-commerce retail industry is continuing to grow exponentially, it is clear that this issue is not going away.
As consumer awareness surrounding the negative impacts of traditional packing practices rises, sustainable packaging companies are quickly scaling. More and more retail companies have already begun exercising biodegradable packaging solutions. The green packaging market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.7% and reach nearly $300 billion by 2024. Impact investors looking to realize impressive financial gains and positive environmental impact are swiftly capitalizing on this expanding market.
This webinar will feature Charlie Schwarze of The Recycling Partnership, Andrew Meyer of AeroFlexx, and Michael Bilodeau of HS Manufacturing. They will discuss the latest market trends and emerging technologies in the sustainable packaging industry, and how investors can identify which innovative products will dominate the market.
