Making the Packaging System Fit the Circular Economy

For the packaging industry to achieve a sustainable future, it needs to dramatically increase circularity and the reuse of materials. While shifting from a linear economy to a circular model will take time, there are already actions that brands, manufacturers, and converters can already take to help make a difference. This document by Siegwerk – a global leader in inks and coatings for packaging – delves into solving the plastic paradox, looks at the relevance of bioplastics, and sets out ways to not only achieve circularity in packaging but also make it economically viable. Furthermore, the document goes into detail on how printing inks and coatings are vital for enabling circularity in packaging. Ultimately, the packaging system needs to be reconfigured for a circular future. And consumers are expecting the packaging industry to play its part in progress. To take the first step towards circularity, download this document.

According to Mondi’s press release, 14% of the world’s food is lost in transit thanks to inadequate storage and transportation. Bravocado is designed to withstand humid conditions and is recyclable and 18% lighter than existing solutions. It is also paraffin-free, enabling Cartro to save costs by running higher corrugator speeds.

Cartro CEO Juan Javier Gonzalez said: “Our company is the biggest independent corrugator in Mexico and known for reliability and quality. Thus, when we decided to enter a new market, we needed to be able to stick to our guiding principle of ‘quality on time’. We wanted the new packaging to be a quality reference point, so we joined forces with Mondi to develop a lightweight corrugated box that can withstand the challenges of long haul transport in humid environments.”

Bravocado contributes to Mondi’s ‘EcoSolutions’ initiative, which aims to find the best sustainable solutions for customers.

Mondi corrugated packaging CEO Markus Gärtner said:  “At Mondi, we have developed a customer-centric approach called EcoSolutions, which helps us to deliver the right sustainable packaging solutions for our customers. We partner with our customers to help them achieve their sustainability goals with solutions that are fit for purpose and sustainable by design.”
