A new way of measuring packaging’s environmental footprint 

Global sustainability consulting firm Quantis has developed eQopack, a software as a service (SaaS) tool that embeds eco-design into the packaging development process. Using robust environmental data, eQopack allows designers and engineers to measure the footprint of packaging, enabling smarter, more sustainable results.  

eQopack allows users to consider environmental factors, such as climate change and land and water use, across the packaging solution’s entire lifecycle — from raw materials to end of life. In addition, designers can use the tool to assess packaging options with indicators like reusability, recycled content, pack to product weight ratio and more, and generate an environmental performance score to help guide decision-making.
