With 73% of stakeholders indicating that they consider value added packaging as an important part of their brand experience, it's not surprising to see sustainable packaging on the rise. That's according to a recent survey sponsored by Jabil Packaging Solutions.
Many of the world’s biggest brands have documented commitments to their social & environmental responsibility strategies. And they are making a difference with solutions for cutting carbon emissions and bio-plastic packaging options that reduce environmental impact. In fact, 69% of respondents expect bio-based plastic packaging materials to increase over the next three years.
