Targeting today’s “green” consumers: balancing sustainability and functionality in beauty packaging

The beauty brand packaging challenge: practicality versus waste

Lia Neophytou, Associate Analyst, GlobalData

Modern consumption patterns and their impact on the environment are encouraging consumers globally to choose beauty brands and products with a commitment to mitigating their environmental impact.

As result brands are under increased pressure to reconsider their sustainability practices across all aspects of their offering from product formulation through to packaging.

In particular, the ongoing war against plastic is catalysing the “zero waste” beauty movement, gaining traction among consumers globally and raising the profile of packaging and its ecological impact.

In turn, beauty players need to find alternative solutions for their packaging strategies which balance sustainability with functionality and, for premium brands, that can contribute towards their luxury positioning.

This presentation will explore the importance of sustainability for today’s consumers in their packaging choices, the key trends which are influencing their behaviour, and how today’s beauty brands can innovate to capitalise on this growing opportunity.

Be sustainable or be irrelevant

Michael Sheridan, Founder and Chairman, Sheridan & Co

2018, a year whereby plastic has been under intense scrutiny.

 

Trash has become a prized material. Educated and topically informed consumers use their purchasing power to seek brands with green, ethical and sustainable credentials.

 

Brands have no choice but to create sustainable strategies. As retail designers and brand communicators, it is crucial and our responsibility to design with sustainability in mind.

Is Packaging the silver bullet to address the declining impact of traditional media?

Steve Honour, Design Leader, Innovation & futures

At a time when many forms of traditional advertising are in decline, brands have ramped up owned media efforts to offset the falling effectiveness of TV, radio and newspapers.

 

But is packaging the most powerful media form of them all? Savvy brands are using packaging, design and technology to drive loyalty and create powerful, sustainable brands with purpose.

 

 

Join Diageo’s Steve Honour to explore the latest trends and possibilities as products become an increasing viable media channel and creative outlet for the world's top brands.

Sustainable innovations for a better future

Simon Boas Hoffmeyer, Group Sustainability Director, Carlsberg Group

Today's consumers are more environmentally conscious than ever, and the whole society is aiming for a more sustainable development. This puts high demands on a company’s product development.

 

Simon Boas Hoffmeyer, Sustainability Director at Carlsberg Group, explains how Carlsberg works strategically with sustainability through their industry leading sustainability programme Together Towards ZERO.

The presentation will include concrete examples of how the company is working to achieve their ambitious targets, including achieving ZERO carbon emissions at their breweries and a 30% reduction in the beer-in-hand value chain footprint by 2030.

 

 

As packaging makes up approximately 40% of the company’s total carbon footprint, it is an important area to focus, and during the presentation Simon will show examples of how the company is engaging consumers with more sustainable packaging innovations.

 

 

An example is the development of the world’s first bio based beer bottle – The Green Fibre Bottle.

Making Pharmaceutical Packaging Smart

Steven Bagshaw, Marketing Executive, Centre for Process Innovation

Printable electronics offers the potential to add functionality to everyday objects in form factors that would be difficult in conventional technologies.

 

The pharmaceutical industry in particular is recognising the value offered by thin, flexible functionality that can be incorporated into products or packaging to improve supply chain monitoring and the delivery of healthcare related products.

 

 

The presentation will talk about a recently concluded case study in which GSK & AZ worked alongside CPI to develop a smart pharmaceutical label which allows for conditional monitoring of pharmaceuticals within the supply chain.

 

The prototype label has been tested in real time and provides data on temperature & humidity. Further iterations of the label have included other environmental factors, seeking to address commonly occurring issues within the supply chain.

 

 

Within the presentation Steven will talk about the common challenges and trends in which companies face in the scale up of their smart electronic packaging innovations. Success stories and learnings will both be shared, whether that be the underpinning science and the commercial viability of the application, or compliance obstacles from the user, to issues on process repeatability and supply chain readiness to name a few.

How CPG brands are using augmented reality - featuring the Cadbury Heroes Advent case study

 

Natalie Matlak, Senior Brand Partner, Blippar

Synopsis: AR allows CPG brands to transform products and packaging into a media channel that extends the brands experience with the consumer. A brand's most distributed touchpoint can now deliver relevant, contextual information at key moments.

 

Presenting a case study of the interactive Cadbury Heroes Advent Calendar - a collaboration between Blippar, Cadbury and Design Bridge, AR was used to bring the advent calendar to life over 24 days and elevate the traditional consumer ritual of opening a window by creating a unique and enjoyable experience they could share. With the interactive CTA, this calendar became the 4th best selling advent calendar of 2017.
