The word sustainability has grown in popularity as the “must have” strategy in recent years.  But what is the context and the crisis that will really drive planetary change in our VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complex, and ambiguity) world of today.  Drawn from more than 30 years’ experience in the release liner industry, Sean’s presentation will share a few reflections on the philosophical challenge we all face and how to buck the greenwashing trend.
