Avery Dennison invites you to join Plasticity Amsterdam on 20th June
A one-day conference fuelled by new circular economic thinking and ground-breaking technological advances
OEGSTGEEST, the Netherlands — May 27, 2019 — Global materials science and manufacturing company, Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE: AVY), a sponsor of Plasticity, is supporting the organisation to hold their 12th Plasticity Forum in Amsterdam on 20th June, 2019.
The forum, which has previously been held in many major cities around the world, is coming to Amsterdam, with local and international speakers, presentations, panels, networking opportunities, and lots of ideas. Founded as a global forum for practical, progressive thinkers who are excited about the future of plastic and the planet, Plasticity aims to educate attendees on the latest developments in plastic circularity, and to create a workshop environment for delegates to collaborate and create practical take-away solutions for their business needs.
Joining a wide range of speakers, including Global Head of Sustainability Strategy and Innovation at HP, Ellen Jackowski, and Group Sustainability Director at Coca-Cola Hellenic, Michal Dickstein, will be Avery Dennison’s Vice President and General Manager of Label and Graphic Materials Europe and Group Sustainability Lead Jeroen Diderich, who said:
“I am very much looking forward to the Plasticity event in June -- to learn from others across our ecosystem and to discuss the future of labels and packaging -- debunking some old myths and collaborating for the future. We will also hold a smaller, focused workshop on 21 June to create discussion and action towards circularity in our industry. For me, such focus and collaboration is critical to make progress in this area, so I welcome business leaders across our value chain to join us at this event.”
Doug Woodring, founder and managing director of Ocean Recovery Alliance said:
“At Plasticity, we look for practical and progressive thinkers to join our forum, to bring together new ways of thinking, technologies, and creativity in order to introduce innovative projects and initiatives that will help improve our ocean environment. We are delighted to have Avery Dennison join us as a partner at this event. We are confident that together we can create significant change.”
As a follow up to the one-day Plasticity forum, Avery Dennison will host a workshop on June 21 focused on creating circularity within the label and packaging industry. Space is limited. Please reach out to Jenny.Wassenaar@eu.averydennison.com for details.
