The twice-monthly “Big Ideas” series will feature interviews with thought leaders from global consumer-goods companies, sustainability organisations and Amcor itself. The first episode features Procter and Gamble’s Steve Sikra, who leads the company’s global material-science and technology program.

“Urgent global problems are best solved collaboratively,” said David Clark, Vice President of Sustainability at Amcor, the global packaging leader. “The podcast is another way we are sharing the knowledge of global sustainability experts – from among Amcor customers, suppliers, colleagues and others – with the resolve to better protect the environment.”

Hosted by Mr. Clark, guests will describe sustainability challenges, real-world experiences and practical solutions to the world’s most pressing issues, including marine debris and food insecurity.

“We believe that Procter & Gamble will be successful by being sustainable,” said P&G’s Mr. Sikra in the first instalment of “Big Ideas.” “Our ‘Ambition 2030’ goals include a commitment that no P&G plastics will enter the ocean by 2030. To deliver on this goal, we must drive and deliver innovation and collaboration across the entire value chain.”

“Our strong belief is that Procter & Gamble will be most successful by being more sustainable,” said P&G’s Mr Sikra in the first instalment of “Big Ideas.” “Our ‘Ambition 2030’ goal includes a commitment that no P&G plastics will enter oceans by that date, and delivering on that requires innovation and collaboration.”

Future guests will include Patty Moore, President of Sustainable Materials Management for the State of California; Andrea Haas, from the not-for-profit Earthwatch Institute; and Dave Cornell of Eastman Chemical Company.

“Amcor’s global team is inspired by winning for the environment,” said the company’s Mr Clark. “To accelerate our progress, we partner with customers, suppliers, and leading nongovernmental organisations to develop packaging that is increasingly sustainable, and addresses issues from food waste to ocean pollution.”

Amcor is the only global packaging company that has pledged to develop all its packaging to be recyclable or reusable by 2025. The company also committed to significantly increasing its use of recycled materials, and driving greater recycling of packaging.

Each episode will be 10 minutes long. The conversations, will be published in all major podcast stores under “Amcor Big Ideas” and available at
