Back up sustainability claims

Share your brand’s packaging sustainability successes with the accurate data you need to support your claims.

“For something to be truly recyclable, it has to be collected, sorted, sent somewhere to be processed into another material, and then it actually has to be used again…We see waste data…as a real enabler to increase recycling and influence the actual design of packaging.”

Track packaging from design to disposal

Our waste intelligence insights give brands, packaging designers and policy-makers a detailed account of real-world recycling performance, helping them:

Report

Many packaging producers face a “black box” when it comes to recyclability. By revealing the final stage of the product lifecycle, we can help:

  • Assess the true recyclability of your packaging, based on real-world data.
  • Compare individual brands and products in the waste stream.
  • Flag priority products that the waste sector is struggling to recover.
