Sustainability

A Sustainable Future for Packaging

Sustainable development means working towards economic, environmental and social goals. It is a central part of business strategy for both manufacturers and retailers and sustainable packaging plays a vital part.

Sustainable packaging should be designed to be fit-for-purpose through its lifecycle, made from responsibly sourced materials and be recovered after use. This environmental performance needs to be achieved within the confines of consumer choice and market conditions.
