Seminar: Sustainable Packaging Development - Applying a Service Perspective
In this seminar, Helén Williams will use the service perspective to discuss how improving the functions of packaging is essential for less food to be wasted and more resources to be saved. For a long time, packaging has been seen as an environmental villain and something that should be minimized to save resources. When packaging is viewed from a systemic, service perspective and the focus will be on what packaging does, the priority changes as to what is most important from an environmental point of view; the food. Packaging initiatives that preserve food products will be important to fulfill the United Nation’s Sustainable Development goal to - halve global per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels’ (12.3).
Presenter: Helén Williams, CTF, Karlstad University,
The seminar is part of a multi-disciplinary seminar series on Service system transformation, in which researchers from different perspectives and approaches within service research will illuminate the research area. The seminars will focus on global societal challenges and how transformation within social systems works. The series consists of five seminars.
