Roundtable: Making Sustainable Packaging Commercially Viable
As consumers and businesses become more environmentally conscious, sustainable packaging is gaining popularity. However, it isn't always that simple. Usage of 100% sustainable material and design increases the unit cost of packaging. This remains a big deterrent for brands investing in sustainable packaging. Also, availability of supplies, knowledge of alternatives play a role in brands making a commitment to 100% sustainable packaging. According to FMI research, more than 35% of brands will consider cost as a primary factor while making a switch to sustainable packaging. And while consumers say they are willing to pay more for sustainability, purpose driven consumers are still a minority today, with product price being a key buying consideration still!
FMI was in discussion with industry stalwarts to delve on strategies and winning case studies on how to effectively reduce immediate costs for sustainable packaging and eventually make it commercially viable enabling wide scale adoption.
