Sustainability macro trends and the impact of Covid-19

Sponsored by: Mondi Group

Focused on:

  • Consumer Expectations

Date: 12 May


Time: 2PM London/ 3PM Vienna

Ready to gain some insights on how the consumers think and act?

Join our webinar where we share the recent findings of studies run by Mintel and presented by the senior analyst Richard Cope. During the webinar we will take a look from the consumer’s perspective, which will be structured in three parts:

1. Consumers’ current sustainability behaviours and attitudes in general and in specific regard to packaging and recycling.

2. How macro trends across demographics, home life, health, resources and technology will change in the coming decade, along with examples of key early sustainability innovations (including those in packaging) that will go mainstream.

3. And then as a cherry on top, recommendations for how to operate as a sustainable company and what this means for the retail paper bags industry.
