Ask the supplier: “Can you document environmental and sustainability requirements?”
More and more consumers are demanding that the companies they shop with are sustainable and take a stand on both the environment, working conditions and economic sustainability of the entire supply chain.
Over the past 10 years, sustainability and environmental considerations have become important competitive criteria for many industries, not least the retail industry. Younger consumers in particular are focused on greener and more sustainable solutions, and this is not just empty words – money is increasingly being spent on products that are completely sustainable.
It is important, therefore, that your packaging supplier can present the right certification to ensure the packaging in which you are investing is best for the environment, and that the working conditions throughout the production process are in order; a certification that you can display again on your packaging and use in your branding.
