Global Green Packaging Market

Market Overview

Unorganized disposal of packaging materials on earth is one of the major causes for soil pollution. As per Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) UK, packaging contributes nearly 3% of land-filled waste by volume. In 2014, as per DEFRA, over 82 million tons of packaging waste was generated in Europe out of which 41% wastes comes from paper & cardboard packaging. In 2012, as per Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), around 30% of total solid waste generated in the US comes from containers and packaging. Green packaging solution is to reduce the generation of solid waste and to keep the environment safe. The concept of green packaging is to use biodegradable materials to provide efficiently designed packaging which can be easily reused and recycled. Rising consumer’s awareness towards environmental issues and reduction in carbon footprints is improving the expansion of green packaging business. Government is also establishing regulations to increase the reuse and recycling of packaging waste. In June 2017, National Environment Agency (NEA) launched two new packaging waste reduction plans in Singapore. Furthermore, to promote and create sustainable environment, leading multinational companies such as BASF, DuPont, Eastman and many more together formed a community named “Together for Sustainability”. This community supports the programs for sustainable development initiatives taken by United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and the Responsible Care Global Charter. Such initiatives are likely to boost the growth of global green packaging market in the near future.

Moreover, key vendors of green packaging are also focusing on creating right-sized packaging containers to eliminate extra space and wasteful materials. These products will lead to generate less waste which goes to landfills and will promote sustainable packaging. For instance, Packsize a corrugated material manufacturing company introduced right-sized packaging on demand to reduce their carbon footprint and improve sustainable packaging.
