Sustainable Packaging for SME’s
Sustainable Packaging and Design for SME’s

Sustainable Packaging ultimately ensures that the design provides the lowest possible environmental impact compared to existing or conventional packaging. Sometimes achieving the lowest possible environmental impact can be challenging, particularly when balancing various environmental criteria with other functional and commercial considerations.

This support will help you to navigate the new ways packaging needs to be designed for your business.

Businesses are turning to sustainable packaging for many reasons, including to meet the 2025 Sustainable Packaging  targets,  corporate social responsibility, reducing their carbon footprint, reducing unnecessary packaging and waste, increasing sales — and because retailers and consumers are demanding it as a key global movement.
