Management guidelines on ecological plastic packaging

These guidelines summarise, which aspects have to be considered when thinking about eco design.

Recyclability, bio-plastics or a reduced CO2 footprint – many food and consumer goods manufacturers want an ecological packaging design using plastics, but are uncertain how this can be achieved.

Packaging design is a particularly challenging task in countries where waste management is not functioning adequately. Especially under these conditions it is important to influence the prevention of littering. Here in the management guidelines of the “Round Table for the Eco Design of Plastic Packaging” product managers and packaging experts can find out how the right packaging strategy can help, and what else is important in eco-design.
