After the first round in 2020, Henkel launches the second edition of its virtual conference and exhibition dedicated to sustainability: The Sustainability Forum is returning in a new expanded format – Henkel Sustainability Days 2021, which will be held from November 16-18. The fully digital 3-day event will once again bring together experts from across the packaging and consumer goods value chain for in-depth discussions on sustainability.
“At Henkel, we are committed to blazing a trail for more sustainable products, processes, and lifestyles, through innovation, transparency and especially through close cooperation with our customers and suppliers to help them join us on this vital journey. Therefore, we are delighted to present this incredible event for Henkel customers and business partners,” said Brandi Schuster, Head of Market & Customer Activation Packaging Adhesives, Henkel. “Sustainability Days 2021 presents a unique platform for knowledge transfer and networking that crosses disciplines and continents – and, best of all, is completely free to participate in.”
