6 WPC Flexible packaging and sustainability, Global approach / DATE 06/06/ Sustainability and packaging Brundtland Commission of the United Nations on March 20, 1987: sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. How does this relate to packaging? Meets the needs of the present: -Packaging contains, protects, preserves, transports, informs, and sells food and other essential products. -Packaging in modern society is fully integrated into business, institutional, industrial, and personal use. Without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs: -Efficient use of the earths resources -Enabling distribution of food and other goods for a thriving planet

7 WPC Flexible packaging and sustainability, Global approach / DATE 06/06/12 7 Packaging has been around for some time

8 WPC Flexible packaging and sustainability, Global approach / DATE 06/06/12 8 We have come a long way since then

9 WPC Flexible packaging and sustainability, Global approach / DATE 06/06/12 9 But also a step backwards? Packaging waste Over sell-by date Overconsumption Fresh produce

10 WPC Flexible packaging and sustainability, Global approach / DATE 06/06/12 10 Food waste, SIK study

11 WPC Flexible packaging and sustainability, Global approach / DATE 06/06/12 11 EUROPEN sustainability vision What is 'Sustainable' Packaging? Such packaging should: be designed holistically with the product in order to optimise overall environmental performance be made from responsibly sourced materials be designed to be effective and safe throughout its life cycle meet market criteria for performance and cost meet consumer choice and expectations and be recovered efficiently after use

12 WPC Flexible packaging and sustainability, Global approach / DATE 06/06/ Sustainable flexible packaging Examples: Intrinsic advantages of flexible packaging Multilayer technology Bio-based packaging materials Equilibrium Modified Atmosphere Packaging

13 WPC Flexible packaging and sustainability, Global approach / DATE 06/06/12 13 Advantages of flexible packaging Very efficient in shipping and storage (rolls) Extremely lightweight (typically My) Low weight and volume as waste (2-10gr to pack volume of 1 liter) Attractive display effect through printing/visual effects and texture Long shelf life through extruded or laminated barrier layer Protection of goods (puncture/impact resistant) Processing in package up to 135 deg C Low temp storage conditions from – 80 deg C Sealable, Peelable and Reclosable Combination of many functional layers
