Our objective with PIDA is not just about strengthening ties between the schools and the industry, but also about contributing to a sustainable future by investing in initiatives which increase the overall proficiency of the industry
The students have an innovative perspective and through the competition, we learn about future demands on our industry. PIDA is thus an important initiative for both industry and future packaging designers alike
given a choice between plastic and paper, we believe that our products can contribute to solutions against both plastic littering as well as climate change, two of our times largest sustainability challenges
