UK: FDF and INCPEN publish packaging sustainability checklist

31 March 2017

The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) and the Industry Council for research on Packaging and the Environment (INCPEN) have published a sustainability checklist for packaging. The checklist will help companies choose and optimise their packaging systems in order to continuously improve the sustainability of their value chain.
It provides practical guidance for companies to improve resource efficiency at all stages of a packaged product's journey while ensuring that the essential functionality of the packaging is not compromised. While including references to relevant regulation and guidance, the checklist also encourages companies to go above and beyond legal requirements (News Item FDF, 10 March 2017).
