The Golden Design Rules were developed by the Consumer Goods Forum, a consortium of international consumer goods manufacturing companies who combined represent more than 10% of the global plastics packaging market.
Voluntary and time-bound, they aim to create increased value in plastics in support of increased recyclability, recycling rates and availability of recycled content resins – and in keeping with the targets within the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment.
The Golden Design Rules address which plastics should be primarily used for packaging and specific design elements to eliminate unnecessary plastics and increase the value of the plastics in the marketplace. The course will introduce the Golden Design Rules, explaining how and why the rules were developed and how the rules may affect your company. The course will be taught by one of the members of the expert team who helped develop the Golden Design Rules.
Course Instructor, Dan Lantz, is one of the members of the expert team who helped develop the Golden Design Rules.
