What is CSP?

Mastering Sustainable Packaging: From Concept to End of Life

In the sustainability discourse, it's more than a buzzword; it's a vital ongoing dialogue crucial for every industry. Meeting customer demands for sustainable packaging requires embedding this conversation into the packaging concept phase, considering the entire lifecycle to minimize environmental impact.

To that end, the Packaging School has crafted a sustainability package design program that will equip learners to fluently communicate in sustainability language, set and achieve UN-based sustainability targets, design sustainable systems, measure carbon footprints, attain carbon neutrality through offset programs, and integrate a cutting-edge LCA software into their packaging concept development and material selection processes.
