The Goals Database
ALDI, Inc.View Profile
For products and product packaging of our core range products made of paper or cardboard, we have set the goal to only use certified or recycled materials by the end of 2020.
In 2017, we announced our commitment to a closed-loop supply chain—where products are made using recycled or renewable materials only. And where we return an equivalent amount of material back to the market to be used by us or others.
We hold ourselves to a strict definition of closed loop: To meet our goal, we must use 100 percent responsibly sourced recycled or renewable materials and ensure the equivalent amount is returned to market.

Danone is committed to eliminating the deforestation risks of its virgin paper & board packaging supply chain by 2020. The commitment targets three concrete objectives: actively reduce the weight of paper and board packaging for each product, prefer the use of recycled fibers and, where this is not possible, prefer FSC certified virgin fibers.
Packaging material should:
• Be beneficial, safe and healthy for individuals and communities/environment throughout its lifecycle
• Come from either recycled or rapidly renewable sources
• Be processed, manufactured and used in efficient and environmentally safe ways
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.
Achieve 40% average recycled content in our plastic bottles [by 2025] – and 100% by 2030.

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.
Corrugated fiberboard packaging should be manufactured using a minimum of 25% recycled fiber content using the maximum available post consumer material where adequate supplies exist.
In addition to specifying the use of easily recyclable materials, IBM Corporation promotes recycling through its purchase of products that contain recycled materials. To assist in achieving this objective, IBM requires that plastic packaging must be manufactured using the maximum possible post consumer recycled resin.
