The list of rules for conscious packaging ends with responsibility. But what does responsible packaging mean?
From a strictly industrial point of view, responsibility implies a responsible management of production processes and an awareness of environmental issues and the relative regulations of workers.
Production cycles and choice of low-impact raw material that allow energy savings, ways of hiring workers, safety and accident prevention regulations.
The responsibility of packaging is expressed through its recyclability, a low-impact raw material finding, a production cycle that does not waste energy, an intrinsic utility to the packaging and best practices for disposal.
The concept of responsible packaging encapsulates the sum of the other 7 rules, with a focus also on manufacturers.
Even in the packaging industry, nowadays one of the major concerns of companies is the consumer’s perception of their mission and values.
How does business ethics emerge through its products and their packaging? Is the mission clear? How is the packaging produced? Does the company deal with sustainability? Does the production chain respect the workers?
Questions that need clear and visible answers and more. They require a physical counterproof, which consists of the packaging itself throughout its entire production cycle.
Does the company follow international regulations based on safety and hygiene standards for production and for workers, necessary for example in the case of delicate products such as drugs or food?
Do the materials used to produce the packaging come from responsible sources or from a certified supply chain?
