SPC updates definition of sustainable packaging

- Last updated on GMT

An updated definition of sustainable packaging has been published by a specialist industry working group.

The Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) said the amended version of its document “embodies a stronger life cycle focus for material health concerns”.

The criteria that sustainable packaging "is made from materials healthy to all probable end of life scenarios"​ was modified to read "is made from materials healthy throughout the life cycle."

This and a few other minor changes were recently ratified by the organisation’s executive committee.
