-- Georgia-Pacific Professional, a manufacturer of innovative washroom, wiper and foodservice solutions, is proud to announce that John Mulcahy, vice president of strategy and category effectiveness, will share sustainability insights at the upcoming Restaurant Leadership Conference, March 25-28, in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Mulcahy will review the benefits of single-use foodservice packaging as well as the challenges faced by the industry in recycling packaging after use. He will highlight ongoing efforts to address these challenges based on Georgia-Pacific Professional’
s views on the three dimensions of sustainability:
social, environmental and economic. Specifically, Mulcahy will introduce several initiatives that show promise in unlocking this valuable source of recycled material.
Kicking off his Spring speaking tour, Mulcahy spoke at the 2012 Sustainability in Packaging Conference earlier this month on foodservice packaging design and how it should support multiple end-of-life scenarios. Mulcahy addressed the need for innovative packaging design to minimize waste with the collaboration of converters and suppliers.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to speak at this forward-thinking conference on behalf of Georgia-Pacific Professional,”
said Mulcahy “Both the Restaurant Leadership Conference and the Sustainability in Packaging Conference serve as great learning opportunities and platforms for us to share insights we have gleaned working with our customers to help them achieve their sustainability objectives.”
