Packaging is a key component of delivering safe, high-quality products to our consumers. However, we recognize packaging waste is a global issue that is an increasing concern for our customers and consumers. Beyond waste, we know that both the production and disposal of packaging contribute to our Scope 3 GHG emissions.
Currently, 77 percent of our product packaging by weight is recyclable. We will be focusing our R&D capabilities on recyclable materials that will provide the safety barrier, shelf-life protection and flexibility our products need. Our aim is to leverage our expertise and resources to help provide solutions that will protect our own products and potentially offer solutions with benefits beyond our business.
Our focus also extends beyond consumer facing packaging to include transport and display packaging where we have increased our focus on using recycled materials, reducing material usage and driving distribution efficiencies. By partnering with key corrugate suppliers, we have successfully redesigned and standardized many of our merchandise displays, enhancing reliability and reducing waste.
25 million-pound-reduction in packaging weight by 2025. This is in addition to the previous 2025 goal we met five years ahead of schedule; in 2020, we met our 2025 commitment to reduce packaging weight by 25 million pounds.
