CARTONBOARD PACKAGING IS A LOW CARBON SOLUTION WHEN COMPARED TO ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS

09-07-2021

Recently, Pro Carton has commissioned a study that compares the carbon footprint of cartonboard based packaging against plastic alternatives.

Pro Carton had already commissioned some studies about the carbon impact of carton packaging. Although the analysis gave interesting results, these were stand-alone results for cartons. To provide some context for the results, Pro Carton commissioned RISE, the Swedish research institute, to perform a comparative analysis of the carbon footprint of cartonboard-based solutions against the carbon footprint of alternative packaging solutions. Four products have been compared, one in a predominantly plastic pack and one in cartonboard across three food products and one non-food item.

 

The full study is available online at this link.
