Global Protocol on Packaging Sustainability Released
Want your packaging to be more environmentally friendly? Check out the Global Protocol on Packaging Sustainability released by the Consumer Goods Forum last week. The GPPS is part of the sustainability work stream at the Consumer Goods Forum.
The aim of the Protocol is to help companies reduce the environmental impact of their packaging by providing a common language to address a range of business questions about packaging sustainability either within a company or between business partners.
The Protocol was designed collectively by a diverse group of retailers and manufacturers aided by packaging material suppliers and packaging manufacturers and led by a steering team that included representatives from retailers Walmart, Target and Tesco, and manufacturers Kraft Foods, Procter & Gamble, Nestlé and Unilever.
