Stora Enso's new podcast looks at the opportunities we can create from renewable materials. Global megatrends are driving consumer and customer demand, and our future. How do renewable materials fit in this changing world? With a panel of expert guests we invite you into a lively conversation on a series of subjects close to our heart.
How can we approach packaging in a sustainable way, as the consumer craving for food on-the-go rises? What are the implications? As people continue to move into the cities, how can we help meet the world's demand for sustainable housing? What biomaterials come from a tree, and what can you do with them? Can you really make clothes from a tree? Stora Enso's host Colm O'Callaghan meets and discusses these and other interesting topics with a variety of guests.
