You are registering for one year of access to this Knowledge Center course, starting the date of purchase.

In this course, we look at sustainability in packaging as a practical matter:a sustainable package that functions as it should and appeals to consumers will have a good outcome – consumers will buy the product. Packages that are not sustainable invite government intervention, competitive pressures, and consumer rejection. This course covers the relationship between packaging decisions and the sustainability of the resulting packaging system.

When you have successfully completed this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the functions of packaging.
  • Discuss the effects that packaging has on the environment.
  • Discuss the different approaches – regulations/laws, financial incentives, bans, competitive pressures – to managing the environmental effects of packaging. 
  • Discuss guidelines for designing sustainable packaging systems.
  • Summarize the factors to consider when designing a package system that is both sustainable and functional across the supply chain.
