Reusable packaging can provide an efficient method to handle, store and move product through the supply chain while also reducing a company’s environmental impact in terms of solid waste generation, electricity consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. But how can you measure the environmental benefit? Life-cycle analysis is an effective tool to measure a product’s impact on the environment throughout its life cycle, from raw material extraction to make the product to its disposal or recycling at the end of its useful life. This presentation outlines the use and value of this important measurement tool. Presenter: Bob Klimko, ORBIS Corporation, Director of Marketing-Retail Supply Chain.
