This year’s Sustainable Packaging Coalition Fall Members Meeting kicks off today at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel in Pittsburgh. We are expecting to have over 180 packaging and sustainability professionals in attendance, and we have a very exciting agenda planned for the next two days. The meeting begins today with two exciting tour options: Greenstar Recycling Center, a municipal and commercial single stream processor in the Pittsburgh area, and AgRecycle Industrial Composting Facility, the largest industrial composter in Pennsylvania.
At this week’s meeting, we celebrate eight years of groundbreaking collective work as the SPC, and we are looking to our members to shape the future of the organization. As we continue to work together to advance sustainable packaging, we look forward to a robust discussion on the future of the SPC as we focus on strategic planning for the next five years. Woven throughout the sessions, our meeting’s theme is “Success Through Supply Chain Collaboration.” Look for this theme in sessions that showcase SPC members working together and along their supply chains, as well as the SPC partnering with other organizations. This theme also includes our SPC Member-Led Working Groups, who will be providing updates on each group’s progress. You can find the complete agenda and session descriptions on the meeting website.
As in previous years, we are co-locating our meeting with the Sustainable Packaging Forum, which will be held September 11-13. This year’s Fall Meeting is generously hosted by SPC member companies Dow Chemical Company, PepsiCo, and Solo Cup Company, and we are very grateful for their support and leadership. For those members who are joining us in Pittsburgh, we hope you enjoy the city and the SPC Fall Meeting!
