The speaker series will now be held as a series of short webinars. An email invitation will be sent with registration links for each webinar.

Lisa Eve - Eunomia Research and Consulting
Eunomia was commissioned by the Ministry for Environment in 2018 to analyse the impact of China’s National Sword policies on the recycling sector, which concluded fibre (paper and cardboard) waste was a particularly high risk market.  As a follow up project, last year Eunomia carried out a detailed analysis of the fibre sector in New Zealand, and made recommendations to address issues and increase the resilience of the sector. Lisa will present the outcomes of the research, and the key recommendations that have implications for packaging; she will also touch on relevant aspects of the national infrastructure review Eunomia is currently completing.
