1.4 How to calculate key figures in practice


Key figures can be used to follow changes in use of packaging material for a product from year to year, or to compare new solutions with old solutions in design projects. If there exist data on product loss, this can be valuable in the evaluation of the design changes.

An example is shown in Figure 8. The most important task of the packaging is to protect the product. An increase in loss of product is not environmental beneficial in a value chain perspective.
