Stora Enso at World Retail Congress 2019

World Retail Congress is one of the world’s most important retail conferences where global leaders come together to discuss and present industry trends. Today’s retailers need to consider their environmental footprint whilst still providing value for their customers. As a new generation of eco-aware consumers demand environmentally friendly products, packaging has emerged as a strategic tool to deliver on these expectations. 

Stora Enso will contribute to the World Retail Congress 2019 by presenting packaging innovations that drive retail excellence and enable leaner and more sustainable operations. Renewable packaging materials can replace plastics, reduce carbon footprint and simultaneously enhance customer experience.

Björn Thunström, SVP, Marketing & Innovation, Packaging Solutions and Henna Paakkonen-Alvim, VP Innovations, Consumer Board from Stora Enso will give a keynote on the future of innovations in packaging on 14th May at 11:10.

Gilles van Nieuwenhuyzen, EVP Head of Packaging Solutions Stora Enso will join a panel to discuss some of the challenges on the sustainability agenda on 15th May at 14:35. 

Our Intelligent Packaging team will be hosting a booth throughout the event to present our RFID EcoTag and other intelligent solutions tailored for the retail business.
