Der Grüne Punkt is expanding its extensive range of seminars, and English courses are being added. From April, the popular D4R seminar "Recyclable packaging – a MUST" will be offered in English. Like its German counterpart, it is aimed at packaging manufacturers and those responsible for packaging in the areas of purchasing, product development and QA food and non-food. The highlight is that participants can send a sample packaging after registering for the seminar. Our speakers will assess its recyclability and then incorporate this into the practical part of the event.
