Sustainable development-related issues for packaging have become essential in a context of growing environmental awareness.
Addressing these issues is crucial for sustainable packaging management, allowing the reconciliation of economic efficiency, environmental protection, and social responsibility.
The major challenge is to design eco-friendly packaging to minimize their environmental impact and promote their recycling, reuse, or composting
It involves rethinking packaging design by using recycled, bio-based, or lighter materials to reduce resource consumption and CO2 emissions throughout the lifecycle.
Promoting a model where packaging is designed to be reused, recycled, or repurposed rather than considered as waste to be disposed of.
Climate Change Impact
Reducing the carbon footprint of packaging by prioritizing more sustainable production methods and minimizing greenhouse gas emissions.
Raising consumer awareness about the importance of choosing products with environmentally friendly packaging and prioritizing more sustainable packaging solutions.
Elimination of Single-Use Plastics
Promoting the adoption of alternative packaging to single-use plastics to reduce plastic pollution in oceans and ecosystems.
Investing in research and development of new technologies to create more sustainable, biodegradable, and compostable packaging.
Adherence to environmental regulations
Adhering to current standards and regulations regarding waste management, recyclability of packaging, and environmental protection.
Ensuring responsible management of natural resources, promoting fair employment, and enhancing working conditions in packaging production.
