Sustainable   packaging   is   the   development   and   use   of   packaging   which   results   in   improved   sustainability.   This   involves   increased   use   of   life   cycle   inventory   (LCI)   and   life   cycle   assessment   (LCA)   to   help   guide   the   use   of packaging   which   reduces   the   environmental   impact   and   ecological   footprint.   It   includes   a   look   at   the   whole   of   the supply   chain:   from   basic   function,   to   marketing,   and   then   through   to   end   of   life   (LCA)   and   rebirth. Additionally,   an   eco- cost   to   value   ratio   can   be   useful. The   goals   are   to   improve   the   long   term   viability   and   quality   of   life   for   humans   and   the longevity   of   natural   ecosystems.   Sustainable   packaging   must   meet   the   functional   and   economic   needs   of   the   present without   compromising   the   ability   of   future   generations   to   meet   their   own   needs.   Sustainability   is   not   necessarily   an end state but is a continuing process of improvement. Sustainable   packaging   is   a   relatively   new   addition   to   the   environmental   considerations   for   packaging   (see Packaging   and   labeling).   It   requires   more   analysis   and   documentation   to   look   at   the   package   design,   choice   of materials,    processing,    and    life-cycle.   This    is    not    just    the    vague    "green    movement"    that    many    businesses    and companies   have   been   trying   to   include   over   the   past   years.   Companies   implementing   these   eco-friendly   actions   are reducing   their   carbon   footprint,   using   more   recycled   materials   and   reusing   more   package   components.   They   often encourage suppliers, contract packagers, and distributors to do likewise. Sustainable   packaging   is   no   longer   focused   on   just   recycling.   Just   as   packaging   is   not   the   only   eco   target,   although   it is   still   top   of   mind   for   many.   Right   or   wrong,   packaging   is   frequently   scrutinized   and   used   as   the   measure   of   a company's   overall   sustainability,   even   though   it   may   contribute   only   a   small   percentage   to   the   total   eco   impact compared to other things, such as transportation, and water and energy use.
Specific factors for sustainable design of packaging may include: Use   of   minimal   materials   –   reduced   packaging,   reduced   layers   of   packaging,   lower   mass   (product   to   packaging ratio), lower volume, etc. Logistics    efficiency    (through    complete    life    cycle)    –    cube    utilization,    tare    weight,    enablement    of    efficient transportation, etc., Energy efficiency, total energy content and usage, use of renewable energy, etc. Recycled    content    –    as    available    and    functional.    For    food    contact    materials,    there    are    special    safety considerations,   particularly   for   use   of   recycled   plastics   and   paper.   Regulations   are   published   by   each   country   or region. Recyclability   –   recovery   value,   use   of   materials   which   are   frequently   and   easily   recycled,   reduction   of   materials which hinder recyclability of major components, etc. Reusable packaging – repeated reuse of package, reuse for other purposes, etc. Use of renewable resources in packaging Use   of   biodegradable   and   compostable   materials   –   when   appropriate   and   do   not   cause   contamination   of   the recycling stream Avoid the use of materials toxic to humans or the environment Effects   on   atmosphere/climate   –   ozone   layer,   greenhouse   gases   (carbon   dioxide   and   methane),   volatile   organic compounds, etc. Water use, reuse, treatment, waste, etc. Worker impact: occupational health, safety, clean technology, etc. Made from materials healthy throughout the life cycle Physically designed to optimize materials and energy Use integral design to reduce the use of materials Follow the requirements of the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference The   chosen   criteria   are   often   used   best   as   a   basis   of   comparison   for   two   or   more   similar   packaging   designs;   not   as   an absolute   success   or   failure.   Such   a   multi-variable   comparison   is   often   presented   as   a   radar   chart   (spider   chart,   star chart, etc.).
BENEFITS Some   aspects   of   environmentally   sound   packaging   are   required   by   regulators   while   others   are   decisions   made   by   each   packager.   Investors,   employees,   management,   and customers   can   influence   corporate   decisions   and   help   set   policies.   When   investors   seek   to   purchase   stock,   companies   known   for   their   positive   environmental   policy   can   be   attractive. Potential   stockholders   and   investors   see   this   as   a   solid   decision:   lower   environmental   risks   lead   to   more   capital   at   cheaper   rates.   Companies   that   highlight   their   environmental   status   to consumers, can boost sales as well as product reputation. Going green is often a sound investment that can pay off. COSTS The   process   of   engineering   more   environmentally   acceptable   packages   can   include   consideration   of   the   costs.   Some   companies   claim   that   their   environmental   packaging   program   is cost   effective.   Some   alternative   materials   that   are   recycled/recyclable   and/or   less   damaging   to   the   environment   can   lead   to   companies   incurring   increased   costs.   Though   this   is   common   when any   product   begins   to   carry   the   true   cost   of   its   production   (producer   pays,   producer   responsibility   laws,   take-back   laws).   There   may   be   an   expensive   and   lengthy   process   before   the   new   forms of   packaging   are   deemed   safe   to   the   public,   and   approval   may   take   up   to   two   years.   It   is   important   to   note   here,   that   for   most   of   the   developed   world,   tightening   legislation,   and   changes   in   major retailer   demand   (Walmart's   Sustainable   Packaging   Scorecard   for   example)   the   question   is   no   longer   "if"   products   and   packaging   should   become   more   sustainable,   but   how-to   and   how-soon   to do it.
