Webinar: OPTIMIZING PACKAGING CLIMATE IMPACTS THROUGH LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT

Knowing how packaging can be modified to meet sustainability goals and improve environmental impacts can be a long road to travel with layers of considerations. Companies and supply chain partners alike must look at multiple questions during this process. This webinar training will help attendees understand specifically how to use an LCA tool through demonstration of the EcoImpact COMPASS LCA tool. Experts from Trayak are able to show a live example of how it works, as well as provide multiple examples of packaging improvements that have been made with its input.
