Meeting our goals requires:
– Removing, reducing and restricting the use of materials that may present human health or environmental toxicity risks.
– Optimizing product and package design to reduce materials.
– Maximizing the use of sustainably sourced materials.
– Supporting recycling by designing with recyclable materials and communicating recyclability.
Cisco Systems Inc.View Profile
Once basic packaging and material requirements have been met, Cisco evaluates four additional aspects of environmental package design:
• Packaging material optimization: Designing a package that adequately protects the product from transport damage or waste while optimizing the volume of material and complying with all relevant environmental regulations.
• Space efficiency optimization: Designing a package that optimizes space/cube efficiency during transport.
• Optimizing distribution: Designing the product for distribution in order to further reduce the amount of packaging material used and/or GHG emitted in transportation.
• Environmentally friendly materials: Including recycled content and recyclability in product designs.
Colgate-Palmolive CompanyView Profile
Striving to design products for reuse, recyclability and materials reduction while ensuring product integrity
We have set four sustainable packaging targets to be achieved by 2020.
– Reduce total packaging weight by 15%
– Increase recycled content to 45%
– Make 100% of our packaging recyclable or reusable
– Sustainably source all our paper and board packaging to ensure zero net deforestation.
Dunkin' Brands, Inc.View Profile
We evaluate our packaging on an ongoing basis with suppliers and discuss opportunities to decrease the amount of material in our packaging; increase the amount of recycled and/or certified material in our packaging; and find packaging options that are recyclable, compostable, biodegradable or a combination of those.
Estée Lauder Companies, TheView Profile
Our sustainable packaging approaches include: – Low-impact sourcing: Making sustainability one of the essential criteria in purchasing decisions, along with quality, price and innovation. This will ensure a “least-carbon intensive” approach throughout our supply chain.
– Bio-sourcing: Taking advantage of advances in bio-sourced materials, especially as replacements for oil/gas derived plastics.
– Recycling: Substituting some part of virgin content for recycled content.
– Material substitution: Using components made from less carbon-intensive materials.
– Recyclable packaging: Identifying opportunities to pursue recyclable primary packaging, as well as inserts.
– Elimination: We are identifying and striving to eliminate components within our packaging where possible.
General Mills, Inc.View Profile
We continually innovate to reduce the environmental impact of packaging through better design – by decreasing materials use, switching to lower impact materials (including renewable) and improving truckload packing efficiencies.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)View Profile
Detailed supplier guidelines promote the use of efficient packaging design and use of sustainable materials.
Honeywell InternationalView Profile
Here are the criteria we use to evaluate new products:
• Reducing the use of natural resources during manufacture and distribution
• Increasing the energy efficiency of the product itself, or because of its use
• Reducing waste production
• Opportunities to reuse and recycle
• Opportunities to use recycled or renewable materials
• Reducing and eliminating classified toxic or hazardous materials
• Packaging more efficiently
Johnson & JohnsonView Profile
We continuously explore opportunities to reduce environmental impacts of our packaging by focusing on the following:
Reducing material use by decreasing packaging size, weight or thickness; Using packaging materials with more recycled content; Designing for recyclability by selecting materials that are already widely recycled in the given market; Purchasing responsibly sourced packaging materials; Influencing recycling rates by raising consumer and customer awareness.
Kao USA, Inc.View Profile
We continue to reduce the raw materials used in packaging that becomes waste after product use by consumers.
To reduce the amount of packaging used, we are reducing the amount of resin used in packaging and making packaging more compact, for example by making contents more concentrated, and offering refill products. These activities comply with the ISO 18600 series on standardization of packaging and its environmental impact.
To contribute to reducing the volume of generated waste at retailers, we are working with the understanding and cooperation of retailers to reduce the amount of boxes used in the delivery of products.

2020 plan to minimize environmental impact of product packaging:
Increase overall product-to-package size ratio from 29 percent to more than 50 percent.
5 percent average YOY individual programs improvement in product-to-package size ratio.
Reduce overall package weight by more than 10 percent
