What is Sustainable Strategy?
Drawing upon extensive research and practical experience of supporting companies in the development of strategies, Joss will explore the definition of sustainable strategies and companies, highlight the pitfalls and challenges faced by Sustainability/CSR practitioners and introduce some simple tools and approaches to support companies in developing unique, meaningful and business focussed sustainability responses.

Futureproof 2020 – Elopak’s Sustainability Strategy
Dagfinn will introduce Elopak’s journey to develop its groundbreaking approach to long term sustainability. He will provide insights into the practical implications of developing sustainability visions, building a detailed approach through the involvement of in-house expertise and how Elopak has structured and designed a route map for achieving its sustainability goals.

Achieving change in a value chain context

Highlighting Elopak’s whole value chain approach, they will identify challenges and opportunities presented by these new ways of working.
