United Caps announces Sustainability Week: Every Cap Matters webinars

United Caps, an international manufacturer of caps and closures, announced a brand-new series of online webinars, Sustainability Week – Every Cap MattersThe sessions, scheduled for 11 – 13 January 2022, are designed to provide useful information based on our own innovation that can be applied to customer businesses of all types. Seminars are structured to make it easy for participants to conveniently schedule attendance at the sessions of most interest to them.

“At United Caps, we have a long heritage of acting ethically, creating products responsibility, maintaining respectful workplaces, investing in communities and being good stewards of the environment,” said Benoit Henckes, chief executive officer of United Caps. “Along the way, we have learned a great deal about measuring and managing our carbon footprint, including innovative ways to create more sustainable caps and closures. In this session, we move beyond talking about sustainability in the abstract and demonstrate to attendees that the market for more sustainable product packaging is here, it is growing, and the time for all of us to ensure we are making sustainable decisions is now. We will offer concrete suggestions as to how we can help reduce the overall carbon footprint of product packaging through the use of innovative approaches to manufacturing, including the use of ISCC Plus certified resins that enable us to make outstanding closures from recycled plastics.”

The sessions will feature an in-depth and engaging agenda presented by experts, including–

  • UNITED we stand for sustainable growth – Everything you ever wanted to know about sustainability but were afraid to ask. In this session we will explain key terms, concepts and issues around packaging sustainability.
  • What the consumer really thinks about sustainable packaging – Are you missing an opportunity? How are consumers behaving? What do they understand and does sustainability drive purchasing behavior? We examine the evidence and share our conclusions.
  • We will showcase the tools we have available to impact sustainability, how they appear within our product range and can help brands be more sustainable. This will offer attendees actionable ideas they can take back to their organizations. Finally, will wrap up with a discussion about opportunities moving forward that enable both us and our customers to better meet the growing demand for more sustainable packaging.

Addressing the climate crisis is a journey in which all of us must participate, and we are working to do our part. Together, we can make a difference. Joining for these webinars will help us all take a step forward on that journey.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
