A stop before for the great expedition Tara Pacific
It was our first Challenge event in the US. We took the opportunity to come on board the remarkable boat, meet with her crew and find out more about the research on board.
Acknowledged guest speakers
We were proud to welcome our guest speaker National Geographic’s photographer and adventurer Mattias Klum, who shared his stories from all over the world. We were also happy to welcome United Nations representative Thomas Kass who shared the UN views and efforts for sustainable development worldwide.
Panel discussion about sustainability
Daniella Dimitrova Russo, Think Beyond Plastic™, Nina Goodrich, Greenblue, and Romain Troublé, Tara Expeditions, discussed packaging sustainability and its challenges. The panel speakers agreed that the business community should take the lead on product innovation for more sustainable packaging.
Workshops for packaging performance
We also had workshops where the participants became familiar with some of the packaging innovations from BillerudKorsnäs, including the First Sealed Paper Packaging and the dissolvable D-sack, which we hope will make a difference in the fight against plastic packaging pollution.
With greetings from HRH Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden
Ahead of the meeting, the guests received a greeting from but HRH Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden who also is UN Sustainable Development Goals Advocate. In a personal letter, she encouraged us all to make their best efforts for sustainable development.
