DENVER, April 29, 2019 (Press Release) -Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) and Quad will lead a panel on “Shaping a Sustainability Story for Food Brands” at the Environmental Leader & Energy Manager Conference (ELEMCON) on May 12 through May 14 in Denver.
Ian Lifshitz, Vice President of Sustainability & Stakeholder Relations, Asia Pulp & Paper, and Paul Nowak, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions, Quad, will host a discussion panel at 2 p.m. Mountain Time on May 14 to address the rising consumer demand for food packaging that is both functional and sustainable, as well as how restaurant brands can shape and share their sustainability stories.
According to data from Asia Pulp & Paper’s 2018 Consumer Trends Report, 45% of Americans consider company sustainability values an important factor when selecting a fast food restaurant. Additionally, consumers acknowledge they are willing to pay more for fast food products packaged in sustainable materials, with 35% agreeing they would pay up to 10% more. The panel will cover this growing consumer trend and guide brands in developing and fostering a sustainable supply chain, as well as how to communicate company sustainability commitments and goals with consumers.
