How we can help in your sustainability journey
At PB Group, we recognise that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to sustainable packaging. Each product has its own distinct lifecycle and therefore requires a customised approach to minimise its environmental impact. We understand that sustainable packaging does not possess a “magic formula” that can miraculously solve all environmental challenges and have zero impact. Instead, sustainable packaging aims to minimise those impacts compared to conventional alternatives. Our team focus on three key pillars when discussing and helping to choose sustainable packaging options with customers:
1. Source reduction.
2. Materials selection.
3. End-of-life management.
Source reduction involves minimising the amount of packaging used, optimising size and weight, and eliminating unnecessary components. By working closely with our experts, you can explore design solutions that not only meet your functional requirements but also significantly reduce the environmental impact. We focus on finding the right balance between product protection, aesthetics, and source reduction. This all contributes to a reduction in the overall environmental footprint and waste generation.
Materials selection is a key aspect PB group can help add value in your sustainability journey. Our team of material specialists is dedicated to working with renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable materials that align with sustainable packaging practices. This encompasses a wide range of options such as paper, recycled plastics, compostable materials, and cutting-edge bio-based alternatives.
End-of-life management focuses on the post-consumer phase of packaging. The ultimate goal of end-of-life management is to establish a system where packaging materials are recovered, reused, or regenerated, thereby minimising the demand for virgin resources. Our team can provide expert advice on materials that align with desired end-of-life options considering your specific preferences or requirements.
