Meetings & Events

Education and Outreach

As part of the SPC's education and outreach, it holds several in-person and online meetings and educational events a year. The SPC believes it will require collaboration throughout the supply chain to affect the change needed to realize sustainable packaging. As a result, the SPC continually looks for opportunities to advance its mission through participation in and hosting of conferences and meetings.


The SPC holds two meetings per year – one members-only meeting in the fall and one open meeting in the spring. Meetings provide education on current issues and an opportunity to meet with other packaging industry executives focused on the sustainability issues around packaging. In addition to meetings, the Coalition hosts Open Forum web conference calls on topics of interest. These calls are open to all members and provide an opportunity to continuing education.
