Sustainability: Navigating the Complexity of Raw Materials

Presenter: Madyson Partenheimer, Commercial Sustainability Manager for Healthcare, Hygiene and Specialties, Berry Global.


With continued pressures for sustainability from a regulatory and consumer standpoint, it is important to understand the “full picture” of suitable raw materials. From procurement to end of life scenarios, this presentation will take an in-depth look at the considerations that contribute to a raw materials carbon footprint and help determine the ever-constant question “what is the best and most sustainable solution?” Madyson Partenheimer, Commercial Sustainability Manager for Healthcare, Hygiene, and Specialties division of Berry Global, will discuss the variability of alternative raw materials, from natural materials such as lyocell, rayon, pulp, and cotton, to biopolymers, such as polylactic acid. In addition, she will discuss the pros and cons of each material discussing and the often-overlooked considerations crucial for a complete, holistic life cycle assessment.
