Benefits of the Prevent & Save Programme
Our Prevent & Save Programme and team support will assist your business in optimising packaging systems, design packaging to maximise recycling and prevent packaging waste. We are here to help your business increase the sustainability of your packaging and achieve your environmental goals.
We offer Members the opportunity for an on-site visit from one of our experienced team of packaging technologists to assess your packaging systems.
FREE Packaging Optimisation / Waste Prevention Survey
We carry out a detailed survey and report on ways to optimise packaging, prevent waste and maximise recycling, which is tailored to your organisation.
Advice on cost saving opportunities
Our Membership team provide advice on cost saving opportunities associated with purchasing certain packaging materials and reducing packaging waste.
Guidance on innovations in packaging design
We provide guidance on opportunities to introduce innovative, environmentally friendly or lighter weight packaging material.
Case studies highlighting your initiatives
We partner with Members to create case studies, detailing environmental changes your company has made, that are promoted on our many digital platforms.
