Circular Design Metrics

Cutting edge tool to drive sustainability of your packaging

Following the launch of our Circular Design Principles, we have developed Circular Design Metrics for packaging. With this pioneering tool, we can rate and compare the circularity of packaging designs across 8 different indicators. The Circular Design Metrics - an industry-first – give a clear identification of a packaging design’s sustainability performance, and where to focus attention.
