THE SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING REVOLUTION

Meeting the Challenge Head-On

Companies producing consumer packaged goods (CPG) are at a turning point — find smart ways to make their products and packaging sustainable, or potentially face increasing regulations, taxes, and consumer backlash.

Jabil Packaging Solutions (JPS) has the resources and experience to deliver innovative, sustainable packaging for virtually any consumer product — from food and beverage to home and personal care.

Jabil’s Sustainable Packaging Services Framework

The pressure is on: companies are trying to respond to sustainability mandates, yet finding what is needed, sourcing the right materials, and designing products to fit them all can get extremely complex. Every factor is interdependent, and creating the right solution, end-to-end, may be outside the scope of most companies. 

Jabil Packaging Solutions offers packaging choices by applying a threefold approach to your product. Our comprehensive expertise and nearly 1.5M sq. ft. of JPS manufacturing space in facilities worldwide, will help you find the sustainable packaging that’s right for your product, your brand, and your planet.

DESIGN FOR SUSTAINABILITY

Designing new packaging formats or modifying existing products to meet your sustainability goals.

 

SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING ASSESSEMENT

Validating the carbon footprint, recyclability and sustainability of new product designs to ensure an optimal end-of-life result.

 

MATERIAL SOURCING & DEVELOPMENT

Determining sustainable materials for your package and intelligently sourcing them, while factoring for price, supply, and technical performance.

 

Top Sustainable Packaging Goals for CPG Brands

Through technology leadership, manufacturing excellence, and time-to-market advantages, Jabil’s value-added solutions leverage a portfolio of highly engineered and proprietary processes to solve complex packaging requirements. We help our customers achieve their sustainability goals by providing a combination of solutions for each unique challenge CPG brands face today.

PCR RAMP-UP

Incorporating PCR is a marathon, not a sprint. Collaborate with JPS to determine the appropriate PCR content percentages across your portfolio and implement them while considering supply, cost and demand.

 

DESIGN FOR RECYLABILITY

Consolidating materials and altering form factor can make a world of difference when it comes to the end of life scenario for a given package. Work with Jabil’s packaging design team to ensure your product can be recycled and reused for maximum value at minimal environmental impact.

 

HIGH BARRIER RECYCLABLE FOOD PACKAGING

Barrier packaging drives incredible improvements in shelf life and product quality for food and beverage brands. But until now, it has not been a sustainable option. JPS provides world-leading, high-barrier recyclable packaging solutions that provide the best of both worlds.

 

COMPOSTABLE PACKAGING

JPS leverages materials from leading suppliers to create custom blends that are both functional and sustainable. Return power to your consumers with home compostable packaging that doesn't sacrifice functionality, flavor or product longevity. 

 

CARBON FOOTPRINT REDUCTION

Sustainability is much larger than just ocean plastics. Jabil Packaging Solutions can assess your package and calculate your carbon emissions. From there, tangible design and manufacturing improvements can be made to decrease your carbon footprint.

 

LIGHTWEIGHT, REFILLABLE & REUSABLE PACKAGING

Many packaging formats still use an unnecessary amount of raw material, adding up in cost and carbon emissions. JPS can help eliminate the extra plastic that is not essential, including the creation of reusable and refillable product delivery systems.

 

VOLUMETRIC EFFICIENCY

From cartons to pallets, the small differences in volumetric efficiency across your packaging portfolio can have big ramifications on your carbon footprint. Work with Jabil to optimize your packaging portfolio for cost savings and carbon emissions reduction.

 

REDUCED PLASTICS INTENSITY

Plastic reduction was cited as a leading CPG goal in the 2022 Sustainability Trends Survey Report. Work with our packaging design team to further light weight your current product portfolio or explore Ecologic and FusePack, our sustainable packaging technology platforms that provide drastic plastic reduction benefits.
