Packaging Life Cycle Assessment

Optimize Packages for Sustainability

Trayak provides data-driven insight into the environmental impact of package designs with Life cycle assessment. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is a cradle-to-grave analysis that calculates environmental impacts associated with all stages of a package’s life cycle including:

  • Material sourcing
  • Manufacturing
  • Conversion
  • Distribution
  • End-of-life

Life Cycle Approach 

The life cycle approach quantifies the environmental impact of your package design. Our software allows you to evaluate design alternatives early and rapidly to find the solution that best meets your packaging requirements. This can help streamline the design process, avoid costly mistakes, and even consumer backlash. Life cycle assessment can be used to:

  • Understand impacts for key environmental metrics such as greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel consumption.
  • Identify “hostposts” or areas where there is an opportunity to reduce the package’s environmental impact.
  • Evaluate simple to complex package scenarios including refillable, reusable, and circular packages.
