It’s nearly impossible to think of packaging without of its effects on the environment. Environmentalism has played a large role for several decades and continues to produce new things.
The packaging industry is very dynamic and has undergone a great deal of change because the universe in which it works is changing. Laws and regulations, new products, the globalization of technologies, and a general increase in competitiveness have accelerated in the last 10 years.
The idea of rationing energy use or carbon dioxide production has increased from a possibility to a probability, which will have a direct effect on packaging.
More broadly, there’s a movement in society that has a new slogan called sustainability. Packaging is going to have to satisfy a consumer market and a business market that packaging is part of the sustainability cycle.
