Recyclable Yet Unsustainable? Understanding the Complexity of Sustainable Packaging
Did you know that recyclability doesn`t automatically correspond to sustainability? Sometimes when packaging designers focus on recyclable products, it leads to unintentional, negative environmental impacts, or it simply shifts burdens. Current legislation is too one-dimensional to drive the packaging industry to a sustainable transformation and may in fact exacerbate existing problems or shift burdens. With a few practical examples, we want to demonstrate how focusing on recyclability can increase climate change overall and could produce other negative impacts at a scale that is at least as bad as plastic pollution in the ocean. Join our webinar to get a deeper understanding about the complexity of sustainable packaging and how to approach it holistically. Additionally, we would like to offer a “sneak peek” into the new features of the GaBi Packaging Calculator 2.0.
