How is ESG transforming packaging in the beverages sector?

The beverages sector has already been re-shaped by increasing corporate and consumer consciousness of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues around packaging. Now, amidst a raft of new regulations, those who get ahead of the curve may find new opportunities. Brands are increasingly using packaging as a means of addressing ESG concerns and communicating with consumers. Access GlobalData’s new whitepaper, ESG in Packaging, to examine the challenges faced by companies, and understand how adapting to regulation around packaging, as well as appealing to ESG-conscious consumers, presents opportunities. The white paper covers:
  • Which regulations are governments looking to introduce?
  • How can beverage manufacturers get ahead of regulations?
  • How can packaging manufacturers help and how will consumers react?
  • What packaging and recycling innovations are required and what are the barriers to consumer engagement?
Zero in on how the industry operates in the EU and USA, exploring conclusions that remain relevant for other markets too, including Brazil, Canada, Russia and Turkey.
