Packaging Sustainability Benchmarking

Clearly see how your packaging compares so you can measure performance and make positive changes to reduce your impact upon the environment


Mitigate future costs under Extended Producer Responsibility and Plastic Packaging Tax

With Extended Producer Responsibility on the horizon and the imminent introduction of the Plastic Packaging Tax legislation, businesses are reviewing their current use of packaging to forecast future costs which take into account the introduction of additional, higher costs and modulated fees.


Our Benchmarking service can enable you to find areas where you can mitigate costs and identify opportunities for improvement, to reduce your liability in the future.

The Benchmarking process


Improve the quality of your data so accurate Benchmarking can take place. We’ll work with you to identify areas that need improvement and support you with additional data collection.


Focus Benchmarking on a variety of factors to determine how you perform against best in class and industry average:

If you have other bespoke metrics that are important to your business, we can help to benchmark against these criteria.
