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.
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.
