1.3 Which type of key figures?

Minimise the use of material:

Mass of packaging materials should be minimised, as long as product waste is not increased.

  • Total material consumption [for instance: gram packaging/kg product].
    This key figure can be calculated for the packaging system as total, and/or divided into key figures for primary packaging (inner and outer packaging), secondary and tertiary packaging.
  • Weight of each specific packaging material [for instance: kg fibre, plastic, glass and metal/kg product]
  • Total loss of product (kg)/1000 kg consumed or used product. Can be divided between the most important actors through the value chain:
          • Loss at consumer stage
          • Loss at retailer stage
          • Loss in production stage
