With the world of packaging becoming more eco-friendly, leaders need to get sustainable packaging right — and fast. Explore the four critical stages below to uncover what’s inside a profitable, sustainable packaging value chain.
Delayed by extensive change requests and reviews? Take control of all product development and project tracking activities with the collaborative 3DEXPERIENCE platform. By increasing team collaboration and improving project efficiency, you can reduce the time it takes to launch more sustainable products.
Model and simulate on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to test new materials faster, and ensure product quality and performance. Through virtual material verification, you can prioritize great consumer experiences by assessing and optimizing the materials for recyclability and biodegradability.
Bench test your packaging designs against real-world conditions — and sustainability KPIs — with virtual prototyping on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Use virtual simulation to qualify designs, and validate mold and tooling. Pick up the pace to strengthen the environmental footprint of your designs with lifecycle assessment, built right into the platform.
Improve the accessibility of product data across the enterprise by standardizing product definition and specifications with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. By establishing a digital thread for all materials to support product requirements including claims, you can mitigate risk and provide critical traceability. Implement an efficient digital artwork approval process to ensure accuracy, and launch with speed.
Sustainable packaging is any packaging that provides a reduced environmental impact by using the least resources and is either reusable, recyclable, or biodegradable. From innovations in biotechnologies to corrugated cardboard boxes, sustainable packaging comes in many forms, with options seemingly increasing by the day.
With any profitable sustainable packaging solution, companies must make trade-offs between four key variables: Weight and performance, environmental KPIs, costs, and quality and compliance. The right end-to-end strategy is the key to success.
