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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
