EcoImpact-COMPASS is the leading solution designed for packaging and sustainability professionals. During this webinar you’ll learn how a typical comparative packaging assessment company can use the software to manage and reduce the environmental impact of their packaging. Specifically, you will learn how companies:
- Benchmark existing package portfolio
- Identify hotspots and design better packages by simulating design alternatives
- Track and manage sustainable packaging goals
- Rollup & report total package environmental footprint for corporate sustainability reports (CSR).
EcoImpact-COMPASS is a cradle to grave Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) with eight indicators. Conceived and created by the SPC, the software has now expanded to include many new materials, manufacturing processes and supports additional regions. Many new SPC member/customer-driven features like circularity index and dashboarding & analytics features have been added. EcoImpact-SCORE is an add-on solution that helps visualize and quantify tradeoffs and make comprehensive decisions.
Many SPC members (and non-members) use EcoImpact as an important and integral solution to manage their packaging sustainability. SPC members who wish to preview the benefits can receive a special two-month extended trial access to the software. Additionally, SPC members get a special discounted license price.
