Reducing the environmental impacts of packaging at both primary and distribution levels remain high on the agenda for many companies - but it is often far from straightforward to achieve.
This webinar looks at why this is, and why you need think 'beyond the pack' to be successful.
Packaging engineers are frequently tasked with re-designing primary and transport packs against a backdrop of improved sustainability and / or the use of 'greener' materials. But these environmental initiatives can prove ineffective or even counterproductive. We will explain how poor design decisions can easily result from pressures such as:
Find out why you need to broaden your approach when trying to reduce environmental impacts. Thinking more holistically and considering complete supply chain impacts and product damage impacts is critical. Hear how product damage, pack volumes and supply chain hazards can be significant in the environmental impacts of supply chains and how this suggests an opportunity for a better, system based, approach to optimization.
