What’s the Packlab? 

A lab to rethink, reinvent, reduce, reuse and recycle packaging from a circular economy perspective

An opportunity to work collaboratively to create a common vision of packaging ecodesign and recyclability, the Packlab event builds on the efforts to modernize the curbside recycling system. As part of this major project, it’s critical to bring together upstream and downstream stakeholders to achieve the ambitious performance objectives set for the curbside recycling system. To make this large-scale project a reality, Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ) puts forward powerful ideas and levers for action to help you do more, do better and do differently. ÉEQ invites you to draw inspiration from innovative international models to build the paths ahead together.

Why join the Packlab? 

With the modernization of the curbside recycling system according to the principle of extended producer responsibility (EPR), by 2025, businesses will gradually become fully responsible for the packaging they put on the market, from design to second life, with a focus on recyclability. As this change operates, ecodesign stands out as a crucial and concrete means of action to guide the necessary transformation of the curbside recycling system and of our production and consumption.

As a designated management organization, ÉEQ is more committed than ever to provide the industry with tools and support for the integration of concepts in ecodesign and recyclability to create a true circular economy of packaging 

A unique networking opportunity

Initiate change within your organization by benefitting from the practical knowledge and concrete tools you’ll gain during this the two-day event.

With a focus on ecodesign and recyclability for a true circular economy of packaging, the Packlab is a lab of conferences, workshops and panels on current topics to spark discussions on:

  • New trends in ecodesign and recyclability
  • Materials, including fibre-based packaging and flexible plastics
  • Marketing opportunities and challenges: marketing, branding and greenwashing
  • Outlook for sustainable packaging and the right packaging

Environmental issues have no borders

Join our guest of honour Fabrice Peltier, expert in packaging ecodesign, find out how new French regulation has accelerated the transformation of the packaging world.
