Analyze detailed environmental impacts of individual packages and entire systems using life cycle assessment
Environmental Assessment for Packages
Baseline your current packages and compare alternate design scenarios to make informed packaging decisions
Optimize for sustainability with key environmental metrics identified by the Sustainable Packaging Coalition
COMPASS enables the design process by providing quick ‘what-if’ scenarios and side by side comparisons of packaging alternatives enabling you to incorporate environmental feedback into your package development. The assessment produces life cycle impact data for key environmental metrics such as greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel consumption. The life cycle approach assesses environmental impacts associated with all materials and processes used to bring packaging to market while allowing decision makers to incorporate environmental parameters alongside economic factors.
