As the nights get longer (here in rainy England, at least), and with new COVID-19 related restrictions many of us thought were behind us, it’s important to focus on the positive news from our industry, in many ways thriving in spite of the continued global crisis.
Despite some disappointments, such as the announcement of Metpack 2021 being cancelled, a quick scan of our news section demonstrates that in face of adversity, good work is being done across the world.
The UK has already exceeded its 2020 aluminium recycling rates, Ardagh Group announced a major expansion of its canmaking business, and Anheuser-Busch is working with Rio Tinto to develop an ever more sustainable beer can. Such announcements paint a promising picture, with the pandemic in many ways driving innovation and progress, as we rise to meet the rapidly changing consumer demand not many of us could have predicted twelve months ago.
We are adapting and overcoming obstacles to keep us connected and business flowing, with conferences and events being brought online, and the desire to progress flourishes.
