PAC Packaging Consortium has released its Sustainability Checklist for Structural Package Designers. The checklist was developed by PAC NEXT, PAC’s sustainability initiative with a vision of A World Without Packaging Waste. The checklist is the result of collective input from PAC NEXT’s Packaging Innovation Gateway project team, consisting of over 40 members throughout the packaging value chain.

The purpose of the checklist is to provide a quick reference guide for structural package designers with little to no knowledge of sustainability to help them make more informed decisions for packaging. Rachel Morier, Director of Sustainability, states, “We hope the checklist acts as a starting point for a much larger collaborative discussion as more companies and their suppliers strive to meet the demands for a true circular economy.”

The Sustainability Checklist for Structural Package Designers was designed for an 11 x 17-in. format, printed on two sides for optimal viewing. Download it here.
