DuPont Packaging Announces 23rd Annual Awards for Packaging Innovation
DuPont Packaging has announced a call for entries in the 23rd DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation. Entries will be evaluated for excellence in packaging innovation, sustainability, and cost/waste reduction. The deadline for entries is Feb. 28, 2011.
“The industry is facing many challenges to address cost and waste reduction as well as sustainability demands while responding to consumers’ needs for greater convenience. Innovation is key to these new packaging approaches and we aim to recognize innovative solutions from around the world that address local needs,” said Shanna Moore, global director of sustainability – DuPont Packaging, in a press release issued today. “DuPont sponsors this program to recognize achievements that provide learnings to the industry and to highlight the importance of collaboration. Once again we will conduct a global online event that will be open to the industry and in addition, winners will be honored in a celebration event with senior DuPont executives.”
An international jury panel for the 23rd DuPont Awards will be headed by John Bernardo, president, Sustainable Innovations LLC, USA. Entry forms and guidelines are available at www.packaging.dupont.com.
There is no entry fee, and DuPont materials do not need to be in the packaging structure. In evaluating entries, jurors will consider excellence in one or more of these areas: innovation, sustainability, and cost/waste reduction. Winners will be announced in the spring of 2011.
