Closing the loop with EcoVantage: A case study with Tesco

Sponsored by: Mondi Group

Focused on:

  • Packaging Waste

Date: 12 April


Time: 2PM London / 3PM CET / 9AM EST

Have you ever wondered how to utilise your packaging waste and make it to something useful for your business?

The circular economy is now a topic that concerns all of us and packaging plays an important role. Retailers are trying to be more sustainable by focusing on many aspects in their supply chain and operations including the primary and secondary packaging of their products. Switching to more sustainable and recyclable solutions such as paper-based packaging is one side of the coin. Ensuring a next life for this packaging is the other side and the next step towards a circular economy, especially when closing the loop means also direct positive impact for your business, not only the environment.

In the webinar, we will discuss how Mondi can help retailers close the loop and drive to a circular economy. We collaborate with retailers to use their corrugated packaging waste and give it a next life. We produce the EcoVantage paper grades that use both fresh and recycled fibre and offer good printability and strength in one, making it ideal for shopping bags.
The food compliant bags made with EcoVantage paper could then be used back in the same stores where the waste was previously collected.

During the webinar, a Tesco speaker will share Tesco’s experience as the first company that partnered with Mondi to turn its paper waste into a renewable resource that is in line with their circular economy goals.

Register to our webinar and listen how we can close the loop and support retailers achieve their sustainability goals..

We invite you to join our webinar and learn more how Mondi can help you close the loop.
