International Competition for Sustainable Packaging opens for submissions

The world’s most prestigious competition for sustainable packaging innovation, sustainability awards 2021 is back and is accepting submissions from 25th January to 24th March 2021.

Sustainability Awards:

Sustainability Awards is independently judged by an expert jury representing a cross-section of the international packaging value chain, including leading brand owners and retailers, sustainability organisations, waste management, academia and industry experts.

Each year the competition sees ever growing engagement, assessing submissions from start-ups and global brands by the same, carefully considered criteria.

This is the 3rd edition, which culminates at the Sustainable Packaging Summit on 29th September at FachPack in Nuremberg, Germany.

The Sustainability Awards sets the agenda on best practice, turns the spotlight on the most important areas of R&D, and helps separate greenwash from the innovations that make a genuine difference.

Sustainability Awards 2021

The Sustainable Packaging Summit & Sustainability Awards have continued to grow in stature, attracting an ever-growing international following. Having added the ‘Pre-Commercialized’ category in 2020, the awards competition is expanding again this year, with the addition of a new ‘E-commerce’ category.

The competition’s categories spotlight each of the key areas of innovation where the environmental footprint of packaging and packaged goods can be reduced, from resource efficiency to recycling, biomaterials to greener packaging machinery, and driving best practice at the brand owner and retailer level.

Moreover, across all categories the judges are instructed to favour holistic solutions over those whose gains in one area may be offset by negative side-effects in others.

The full list of categories open for submissions is:

  • Bio-Based Packaging
  • Resource Efficiency
  • Driving the Circular Economy
  • Recyclable Packaging
  • Machinery
  • Best Practice
  • Pre-Commercialized Innovation
