Academy membership will give companies the ability to network with other packaging stakeholders

Veolia has launched a training academy for those involved in the packaging supply chain aimed at boosting packaging circularity.

Academy members will have access to the latest reports and design guides and be able to work in partnership to develop ways to boost their sustainability – from more sustainable packaging designs to new recycling options.

Membership will give companies the ability to network with other packaging stakeholders and benefit from Veolia’s expertise in the latest recycling technologies.

The Academy is open to anyone who is involved in packaging design, environment, supply chain, or sustainability roles in key sectors such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals and chemicals, retail, or packaging manufacture.

Richard Kirkman, chief technology and innovation officer at Veolia UK and Ireland, said: “We all know the impact of packaging on the environment, and the launch of our Sustainable Packaging Academy will further strengthen our work with manufacturers, industry bodies, and local authorities in the drive to ensure that it is all recyclable.

“If we are to deliver on the huge surge in public interest in our sector we must put the Resources and Waste Strategy into practice in a way that can be understood by people inside, and outside, the industry.

“Our all-in-one service now delivers the expertise needed to understand packaging recyclability and make the right design decisions, and can help develop joint solutions or new recycling processes.

“In the move to cut climate change and target net zero carbon, it’s vital that we address the real impact packaging has – and the Sustainable Packaging Academy will help do just that.”
