Constantia Flexibles introduces three new sustainable packaging options
Constantia Flexibles is the world’s third largest producer of flexible packaging. Its 36 manufacturing facilities in 16 countries employ nearly 8,500 people. Its products serve international companies and local market leaders across the consumer, pharmaceutical, and industrial sectors. Its products are used to protect food and drink products, and make them more sustainable. As a result, Constantia Flexibles has pledged to produce 100% recyclable packaging solutions by 2025. The company also sets an absolute reduction target for its products’ impact on the environment through life cycle assessments.
As the world’s population and economy grow, the need for flexible green packaging will only grow. In the next decade, the market for these packages is expected to increase to $317 billion. As a result, Constantia Flexibles is taking steps to meet the growing demands of these markets.
Climate change is a pressing issue, and packaging is a key part of the solution. New legislation is on the way to make it easier for businesses to make the right climate change and packaging choices. The new Climate-related Financial Disclosures (CfD) legislation will come into effect in April 2022 and will force over 1,300 companies to disclose their climate change commitments. It is a move to combat greenwashing and encourage companies to align their sustainability and net-zero goals with UK targets.
Packaging companies are responding to consumer demands by developing more sustainable packaging. A recent survey of global consumers shows that climate change, air quality and plastic pollution are the top three environmental concerns for consumers. In addition, more than half of consumers say that extreme weather events make them more inclined to protect the environment. Almost two-thirds of consumers also want to prove to others that they are doing their part to protect the planet.
Real-time authentication in packaging
Real-time authentication in packaging is a key feature for the food and pharmaceutical industry. The implementation of this technology on a large scale poses several challenges for the packaging community. For example, the system must be scalable and be integrated with downstream platforms, trading partners, and end-user technology.
It is possible to detect counterfeit goods with real-time authentication, which will improve the safety of products. It is also possible to identify the origin of a product, which is an important step for the pharmaceutical industry. In addition to pharmaceuticals, food and luxury goods sectors also need to prove the provenance of their products. This technology has the potential to transform the packaging industry and open new growth opportunities.https://www.youtube.com/embed/8rWu5UlzZHs
