Why the packaging industry is managing carbon
Carbon management is the process of tracking, analysing, and reducing your carbon emissions to protect your business and unlock commercial benefits.
Visibility from cradle to grave
Only focusing on the low-hanging fruit in packaging emissions, like the manufacturing process or waste management system, opens up your company to significant risk. Up to 90% of your emissions are driven by your suppliers before your product even exists, or by your customers after use. Not being able to measure these indirect emissions makes you vulnerable to changing regulation and accusations of greenwashing.
Keep pace with customer expectations
A recent study of more than 1,100 US-based online shoppers revealed that sustainable packaging is now the key driver for consumers. Downstream players like Amazon and Walmart are also piling the pressure on suppliers to meet customer demand. The packaging companies that can’t prove their sustainability will lose commercial relevance.
Build trust with retailers and other suppliers
Packaging is a solutions business that needs to keep innovating products. To do this sustainably, you need to be able to partner across the supply chain to share materials, machinery, or transport. Building a reputation as a sustainability leader in packaging with strong carbon management skills will help you unlock relationships across retailers, suppliers, and even investors.
