The client wanted to improve the circularity and sustainability of its packaging portfolio. For this purpose, it needed packaging guidelines for its suppliers and specific suggestions for increased sustainability of packaging in 12 different product categories.
We created a database to survey the currently used supplier packaging for 12 different product categories. The status quo was analyzed and the potential for improved circularity and sustainability performance was identified. The results were transferred into a tailor-made supplier guideline.
Thanks to the outcomes of the project, the client was able to reduce the impact of its packaging portfolio on the environment and its waste management costs. Furthermore, this project showed their efforts to end-consumers, increased supplier engagement and led to closer collaborations.
