Packaging optimization is the objective. Ecodesign provides the means to achieve it.
Ecodesign: a lever for savings and differentiation
Companies spend significant amounts of money on packaging, both to procure it and for logistics. Eco efficiency is a sustainable development indicator that allows for assessing the economic and environmental performance of a packaged product’s optimization initiative.
Reduce your environmental footprint
- Reduce the quantities of materials used by re-examining all aspect of a packaging item.
- Select processes and technologies that require less energy to manufacture and condition packaging.
- Reduce the use of hazardous substances by reviewing checklists to identify substances that should be avoided (e.g. RoHS, REACH).
- Improve recyclability by simplifying packaging components (single material) and better communicating to the consumer how to sort the materials.
- Extend the product’s life by developing packaging that better protects and conserves the product.
- Improve procurement and logistics performance by cooperating with stakeholders to implement more efficient solutions.
- Reduce the cost of materials purchases, residue and waste disposal, product loss and breakage.
- Stimulate innovation and creativity by putting in place a continuous improvement process based on the life cycle of packaged products.
- Better meet customer and consumer expectations.
