As the exclusive licensee of a professional packaging curriculum developed at Clemson University's acclaimed packaging science degree program, the Packaging School offers an affordable, 12-course, fully online <a href="https://learn.packagingschool.com/bundles/certificate-of-packaging"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">certificate program</span></a> in the packaging industry. </p><p>The Packaging School's curriculum is designed specifically to help working professionals earn credentials for career change or advancement in their current packaging-related career, or to help working professionals network and update their knowledge of the field. The content and certificate are also a great and affordable complement to a traditional degree for students preparing to work in the packaging industry. The online certificate program is an exciting new method of education and training. </p><p>The <a href="https://learn.packagingschool.com/courses/packaging-sustainability"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Sustainable Packaging course</span></a> is a key subject within the Certificate of Packaging Science. The purpose of this course is to guide the responsible development and use of packaging that reduces environmental impact and ecological footprint. It includes a study of the complete supply chain using Life Cycle Assessment tools. The course presents implications of performance and cost, making sure that learners understand that a sustainable package must be functional, cost effective, and support long-term human and ecological health. Learners will walk away with a playbook of strategies they can immediately implement to improve their packaging's sustainability. <a href="http://bit.ly/2tUJtEb" target="_blank"></a></p><p><a href="http://bit.ly/2sU8CL8" target="_blank"><img class="ms-rtePosition-2" src="http://assets.upmraflatac.com/News%20images/2017/packaging_school_UPM_Raflatac_video.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;" /></a>One such strategy is to approach sustainable design with a holistic eco-design approach encompassing the full life cycle of products and packaging from new concept development and raw material selection through end-of-life or, hopefully, reuse. UPM Raflatac, a manufacturer of high-quality, high-performance pressure sensitive/self-adhesive label materials for product and information labeling, supported the development of the course and enabled us to provide this framework in <a href="http://bit.ly/2sU8CL8"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">engaging video</span></a> format with an inside look at their facilities.  </p><p>"Sustainability starts with education; keeping abreast of new findings and the latest technologies is critical when developing sustainable solutions. It's hard for any professional to dedicate time to education, which is why this online course on sustainability was specifically developed to help the student apply the learnings and tools immediately within their current projects and responsibilities," said Dr. Andrew Hurley, Associate Professor at Clemson University and Chief Learning Officer of the Packaging School.</p><p>The sustainable packaging course is a tool for brand owners, material suppliers, converters, printers, and logistics professionals to increase the sustainability of any packaging design across its complete life cycle.
