1.2.1 Packaging and the Circular Economy

Course subject(s) Module 1. Packaging in a Circular Economy

Packaging is considered a Fast Moving Consumer Good (FMCG). These are products that are designed to have a short lifespan and are constantly in rotation. Because of this, developing packaging solutions within a circular economy requires different strategies than those used for regular consumer goods, such as kitchen appliances, which can be designed to last.

In this video, Siem Haffmans discusses this circular perspective for packaging.
