Connect: Collaboratives bring together subgroups of SPC members who have shared interests in a specific topic in sustainable packaging and regularly convene to discuss or deliberate this topic. They serve as a forum to promote partnerships and supply chain collaboration by connecting members to one another on topics of interest.
Learn: Collaboratives serve as conduits for knowledge transfer and awareness among SPC members. The shared goal of all SPC Collaboratives is to help guide SPC members and the industry at large on navigating and addressing sustainable packaging challenges by working together to identify key opportunity areas, uncover and compile key learnings and, where applicable, lay out best practices.
Share: Collaboratives are a key platform to establish and share best practices and learnings on topics in sustainable packaging with SPC members and the packaging community overall, that can be translated into actionable strategies.
Engage: Collaboratives serve as a key point of interaction between the SPC and its members and also provide important insights that help inform other SPC activities.
