By Kelly Barner | May 10, 2023

As goods move through the supply chain, the amount of packaging that moves with them is mind boggling. Efforts to increase operational sustainability are gaining steam worldwide, which means that what that packaging is made of and what happens to it after a delivery has been made are of greater concern than ever before.

In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes Cory Connors. Cory was one of the First 100 to go through the LinkedIn Creator Accelerator program, and now he is a member of the LinkedIn Podcast Academy. Cory is also the host of the Sustainable Packaging podcast, where he welcomes industry experts to discuss ways to make packaging more sustainable.

  • How sustainable packaging intersects with corporate sustainability/ESG efforts
  • The metrics and KPIs used to measure improvements in packaging sustainability
  • Whether sustainable packaging costs more, the same, or less – especially given a total cost of ownership approach
