Leyland Packaging Attend UoN Sustainability Summit

Leyland Packaging recently attended the first University of Northampton Sustainability Summit. They were invited to this inaugural event by one of the event sponsors, Freefoam Building Products Ltd.

Over 150 delegates from over 40 organisations attended to identify their shared sustainability challenges and establish an action plan to address these through collaborative research, enterprise and knowledge exchange. Leyland Packaging, along with the other attending stakeholders, have committed to being part of the solution to improving sustainability across the county, and to monitor their progress in pursuing shared sustainability goals.

Mark Bates, Leyland Packaging Managing Director, explains, “Sustainability is a vital consideration for any business, especially those of us in the packaging industry. However, it is important that we do not silo ourselves into thinking this is just about materials. Sustainability is a global issue and organisations and individuals from all industries face common challenges and find practical solutions. An event like this is an excellent opportunity for us to work collaboratively with other local organisations, share knowledge and best-practice to drive much needed change.

“We are committed to improving our sustainability as a business through our own business practices and the products we supply, as well as having the knowledge and expertise to guide our customers to become more sustainable. We are looking forward to attending the future summits and continuing to increase and share our knowledge to help drive a sustainable future.”
