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.

We give you packaging choices by applying a threefold approach to your product:

  • Use assessment techniques and material science to design product solutions that meet customer-specific sustainability goals
  • Assess carbon footprint, recyclability, sustainability, and other factors throughout the product life cycle
  • Assess and source sustainable materials based on price, supply chain optimization, and technical performance.

Design for Sustainability

To achieve practical sustainability, brands need to carefully consider all phases of development and production to combine the highest functionality, lowest cost, and least environmental impact. With so much of a product’s success directly affected by its design and manufacturability, JPS experience and expertise in every aspect of sustainable packaging is a priceless asset for any company rethinking its green strategies.

Sustainable Packaging Assessment

Accurately calculating a carbon footprint or lifecycle assessment requires a quantitative understanding of the end-to-end supply chain — adding the impacts of source materials, transport, manufacture, as well as end-of-life considerations. JPS can assess your current product’s carbon footprint and provide different options to increase sustainability — from using recyclable, bio-based, or biodegradable content and light weighting to simply changing source material vendors or locations.

Materials Sourcing & Development

Determining the right design and packaging materials – from biodegradable fibers to a specialized polymer resin – for a particular product or component is just the first step. Finding dependable, competitive sources is the next. JPS prioritizes strong supplier relationship management to provide reliable access to diverse sources of recyclable, PCR, bio-based, and biodegradable/ compostable resins worldwide – ensuring an uninterrupted supply chain while minimizing the environmental impact of long-distance shipping.
