Introduction to Sustainable Packaging Design

Due to high demand, the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) will again be running its new ‘Introduction to Sustainable Packaging Design’ course in Melbourne.

The course is designed to assist anyone who is responsible in their business to make packaging changes to meet ‘War on Waste’ questions, changes to retailer and consumer trends and behaviours; while not spending any more money at the end.

It is suited to Packaging Designers, Technologists and Engineers, anyone responsible for Environmental Strategy Development, Marketing & Sales, and Graphic Designers.

The course will provide attendees a better understanding of the practical guidelines and criteria needed to design and develop sustainable packaging including the Sustainability Hierarchy of Reduce, Reuse then Recycle and the Circular Economy approach to packaging and the environment.

Discussions will also cover Plastic, Glass and Metal packaging and their impact on the environment and whether the use of non-renewable resources, plant-based bioplastics, compostable and recycled materials and various tools can assist their business to understand the full life of packaging. This will involve the impact of ‘Food or Product Waste’.

Participants will be invited to bring with them a sample of their company’s packaging materials to use as a case study.

Ralph Moyle FAIP CPP, Education Coordinator, Australian Institute of Packaging is presenting the course.

The half-day training course plus a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) visit will run on Wednesday the 7th November.
