For half of the last decade, an annual study by Packaging Digest and the Sustainable Packaging Coalition has shown sustainability’s steady growth as a driver of change and innovation in the packaging sector. Could that momentum be slowing?

 

The 2011 Sustainability in Packaging study -the longest-running benchmarking survey on this topic in the industry-indicates some slippage on key questions. This does not mean that sustainability’s importance among packagers has declined. Its impact is still growing, albeit at a slightly slower pace.
