How do we measure Packaging Sustainability?
Most businesses set sustainability targets as part of their wider environmental strategy, typically around climate, water, transport or waste. Measuring packaging sustainability can be a little more challenging.
Some general steps packaging producers could consider
- Establish a base-line data model to which existing packaging data can be assigned.
- This may be supplemented with sample data to agree on a suitable methodology.
- Project scope should be tightly managed from the outset to ensure no deviation.
- Finally, a monitoring plan should be agreed and implemented between all parties.
