Sustainability and digital – is digital the way forward for being a more sustainable business?

Panel Debate

Every day, we send emails, we surf the web, we archive videos, photos or music in the Cloud. We often feel that the whole process is immaterial and almost free, but it is not. Computer, ADSL boxes, routers, cables, servers, storage units, telecommunication equipment: the equipment needed is real. Just like the consumption of energy and non-renewable resources to make and operate them.

Does the design of packaging have an impact on business?

In an evolving retail marketplace, companies will need to consider a lifecycle approach to designing product and packaging to meet varying requirements of online and offline retailers, growing customer preferences and a changing regulatory landscape. Both online retailers and producers will need to work together amidst this changing landscape and take a close look at their products, packaging materials, processes, logistics and end of life management to drive material efficiencies and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
