Packaging material selection has become more complex in this era of increased environmental awareness. The importance of sustainability is undeniably growing.
In this white paper, we present an approach to a Holistic Packaging Sustainability Assessment that expands traditional LCA methods to account for circularity while also factoring in the impact of packaging materials on the waste stream and improving shelf life.
Addressing multiple factors when evaluating the sustainability of the various packaging options is important. How you weigh and prioritize the factors presented will depend on the characteristics of the product you are packaging, but building on current assessment practices to view sustainability more holistically is a necessary step forward in food and beverage manufacturer’s ability to meet their own sustainability goals and satisfy the demands of their customers.
