What Do CPG CEOs Really Think About Packaging?

The June Consumer Goods Forum’s Global Summit will gather decision makers from major consumer packaged goods companies like The Coca Cola Co., Mondelez International, Danone, L'Oréal, Walmart, and PepsiCo, for inspirational talks on how to integrate sustainability with profitability.

How well versed do you think top executives at consumer packaged goods companies are on packaging and sustainability issues? I would hope the answer would be “quite well” since packaging is one of the most visible expressions of a company’s sustainability stance.

But I’ll find out in a couple weeks at the Consumer Goods Forum’s Global Summit. Scheduled for June 11-14, the event is billed as “the landmark annual forum for industry leaders to come together and discuss strategies to integrate sustainability with profitability to meet both immediate and long-term challenges.”

This year’s theme is “Empowering Businesses to Deliver a Better Tomorrow.” Through presentations and networking, the Consumer Goods Forum wants “to help catalyze the positive changes that people, planet, and business urgently need.”

Executives from CPG companies, retailers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and investment bankers will share their insights on a range of topics. For example:

• “The Challenged Consumer – Shifting Values & Behaviors”
• “The Journey to Net Zero”
• “Sustainable Growth: Unveiling Shareholders’ True Expectations”

In addition to sitting in on the sessions and networking events, I’ve requested one-on-one interviews with many executives who will be there. What questions do you want me to ask them? Submit your questions anonymously through this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VCSRKQ6

I’ll report back after the Global Summit.
