Reath are building an open data standard for reusable packaging to promote a common understanding of what data should and could be tracked

Join us on Zoom at lunchtime for our regular ODI Fridays talks. Once you’ve signed up, we’ll send you the link to join. Due to the time difference, this talk will start at 3pm.

Reath are building the first Open Data Standard for reusable packaging. The purpose of this is to promote a common understanding of what data could and should be tracked for safe reusable packaging systems, as more companies move to circular models or trial reuse. While reusing items like packaging may seem easy or obvious, the systems and regulations that govern the space are built for single-use.

Claire Rampen and Emily Rogers will be speaking about the approach Reath has taken to building the Open Data Standard, the challenges and opportunities that exist as more businesses shift to circular models, and away from single-use, and how data will play a critical role in accelerating this shift.
