Design for Sustainability

 

Close collaboration with each client enables us to find appropriate approaches for each brand, ensuring that the design process contributes to a meaningful solution.

REDUCE
Less is more: Use as little material as possible
Sustainable materials: FSC® paper from sustainable forestry; recycled/recyclable plastics
Minimise distribution impact: Consider effective palletisation from the start; reduce number of production steps with intelligent design; optimise route/load planning; environmentally friendly process design; offset CO2 footprint with climate compensation certificates

REUSE
Recycling waste paper and cardboard helps to protect our natural wood resources
Plastic windows/accessories are recyclable and recycled material is also available
Flexible display concepts for multiple promotions; packaging with secondary uses

RECYCLE
Design for recycling: Optimise packaging and display for the disposal process; encourage single-material solutions; try to avoid gluing in windows and other plastic components
Refine designs to make them more disposal-friendly and introduce resource-saving processes
Include clear disposal/recycling instructions for retailers and/or consumers

REPLACE
Source all raw materials from FSC® sustainable forestry; review recycling capabilities; optimise production routes
Use only recycled plastic components; include instructions re separation before disposal  
Aim to replace plastic accessories with fibre-cast/paperfoam moulded elements where feasible
