A new independent study from Smithers Pira, commissioned by Pro Carton, amongst major brand owners and retailers in 5 key European markets has shown resounding evidence of the importance of sustainability in packaging. Folding cartons were perceived as the most sustainable packaging but there is still some confusion about the whole issue of the circular economy and what makes packaging sustainable.
Sustainability generates up to 13 per cent of sales in terms of explanatory content. This is confirmed by a new study conducted by Serviceplan Corporate Reputation communication agency in conjunction with Biesalski & Company management consultancy. Pro Carton spoke with Serviceplan’s Joachim Schöpfer on the importance of packaging.
In response to the question, “Sustainability yes, but how?!”, Martina Hörmer, Managing Director Private Labels, REWE International, gave a clear answer. At the recent joint marketing event of Pro Carton and Propak Austria in Vienna, she made it absolutely clear that the opportunities offered by cartons are by no means exhausted.
