How Resource Efficient is Flexible Packaging?

How Resource Efficient is Flexible Packaging?

IFEU, an independent research organisation, was asked to study two scenarios on primary packaging used in Europe for Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) excluding beverages:

  1. what if all rigid packaging were substituted by flexible packaging?
  2. what if all rigid packaging were replaced by flexible packaging?

The results of this study updated in 2019 show that in the first scenario – substituting rigid by flexible – the total weight of primary packaging used for non-beverage FMCGs in Europe could be reduced by 21 million tonnes per year ( a 70% reduction) and its Global Warming Potential (GWP) could be reduced by 33%.

The opposite scenario – substituting flexible by rigid – would increase the total GWP of the primary packaging used for non-beverage FMCGs in Europe by about 31%. This is despite the much higher actual recycling rates of rigid packaging. Even if the recycling rate of rigid packaging was raised to 100%, this would still lead to 14% higher GWP.
