B&D Symposium: Unpacking the Packaging Lifecycle

Wednesday, September 20, 2023 - 04:00 AM

Legal restrictions and policy initiatives aimed at the manufacturing, design, marketing, and disposal of packaging are expanding rapidly across the country, adding layers of complexity to the lifecycle of nearly all products. As consumer demand for sustainable products grows, green marketing claims face increased scrutiny. Similarly, federal and state governments look poised to advance new requirements on packaging related to materials restrictions, labeling, extended producer responsibility, and more.

Designed with packaging producers, retailers, consumer goods companies, and Product Responsibility Organizations (PROs) in mind, this symposium will help businesses prepare for regulations coming down the pipeline and the enforcement and litigation risks that come with them. Key players across multiple sectors will provide an update on the state of play and emerging developments for plastic packaging both nationwide and in key states.

A formal agenda will follow. Please contact [email protected] for questions.

This program is intended for in-house counsel, EHS professionals, and business leaders at companies, municipalities, and trade associations.

Key topics include:

  • Packaging materials restrictions
  • Recycled content
  • Green marketing & greenwashing
  • Extended producer responsibility requirements
  • Producer Responsibility Organizations
