The packaging sustainability index is designed to simplify your decision-making process when it comes to purchasing environmentally friendly packaging. We understand that sustainability can be a complex issue, which is why we have developed a comprehensive screening process that evaluates each product based on six criteria. Our criteria have been established by a team of internal and external experts and are based on the Sustainable Packaging Coalition principles.
To ensure that our products meet our high standards, we have established six minimum criteria that each product must meet. If a product fails to meet any one of these criteria, it will not be listed on our platform. By choosing from our selection of products, you can be confident that you are making a responsible and sustainable choice that benefits both the environment and society.
The minimum criteria represent the bare minimum that a product must meet to be accepted onto our platform. However, we want to empower our customers to make informed and sustainable purchasing decisions, so we have developed a comprehensive sustainability index that takes into account additional criteria beyond the minimum requirements.
This sustainability index allows us to assess and compare the sustainability of different products and packaging options, helping our customers to choose the most environmentally and socially responsible option available.
To calculate the sustainability index score, we consider the following criteria in addition to the minimum requirements:
- The presence of recycled/waste content.
- Carbon neutrality.
- Recyclability and compostability.
- Reusability of packaging.
- Product certification under cradle to cradle.
- Responsible use of ink and glue.
