The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has awarded environmental and sustainability specialist Dr Carol Lawrence a Fellowship – the highest recognition to AIP members.

The award recognises the significant and sustained contribution to the technology, science or application to packaging in the industry.

Dr Lawrence’s experience in the label industry spans over 20 years.

She started with a technical role at Jac Australia that underpinned the selection of the most appropriate label material for the required application.

This role was enhanced by a background in chemistry, including a PhD in polymer chemistry, gained in the UK.

Dr Lawrence has an understanding of adhesive properties combined with developments in the packaging industry that have led to opportunities in marketing and many product innovations as self-adhesive labelling in Australia has grown in capability.

Most recently she has worked with UPM Raflatac on the environmental aspects of self-adhesive labelling, combined with the sustainability of the raw materials used.

This involves new raw material selection and waste management programs to enhance the company’s Biofore portfolio and to develop long term sustainable label solutions.

Mr Ralph Moyle, National President of the AIP, said Dr Lawrence has displayed all the requirements and more to be awarded a Fellow. 

“Carol has and continues to share her knowledge and expertise with many in the industry, giving freely and willingly of her time and experiences. Over many years she has ensured that others benefit from that which has learnt, never hesitating to show and educate others so that they too will one day hopefully pass on knowledge,” Mr Moyle said.

The AIP National Board congratulated Dr Lawrence for her significant contribution to the labelling and packaging industries in Australia.
