Bookings are now open for the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) ‘Introduction to Circular & Sustainable Packaging Design’ Virtual Training Course which will be held on the 6 May 2021. The AIP trainer will be Ralph Moyle FAIP, CPP, Education Coordinator, AIP.
The world of packaging has changed, and packaging technologists and designers can no longer design for a linear economy. We must design responsibly with the entire environmental impact of the product and the packaging in mind and consider the end of life at all stages of the process.
Circular Packaging Design is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems. It is important to transform the elements of the take-make-waste system: how we manage resources, how we make and use products, and what we do with the materials afterwards.
To meet 2025 National Packaging Targets, it is crucial to understand how Global, Country and Regional Targets, Pacts and Regulations affect decisions made in all areas of packaging design.
Cross-Departmental teams need to be developed to rethink Packaging Design, then design out waste, harness new technologies and materials and make sure that the packaging is reused, repaired and recycled.
The Introduction to Circular & Sustainable Packaging Design training course will discuss:
- Setting the scene on definitions – global and local
- Ellen Macarthur Foundation targets
- Ellen Macarthur Foundation definitions for Circular Design
- Teaching people the benefits of Sustainable and Circular design
- 2025 National Packaging Targets
