Constantia Flexibles Announces Ecolutions Sustainable Packaging Solutions

Every year a massive 2.12 billion tons of waste is produced.* And waste production will continue to rise: It is predicted that in 2050, 3.40 billion tons of waste will be generated in cities alone.

In order to counteract this development, Constantia Flexibles developed a new, more sustainable packaging line called Ecolutions. Besides packaging producers, end consumers are becoming more aware of the need to reduce waste production too. According to a survey commissioned by Constantia Flexibles, 80% of end consumers prefer a eco-friendlier packaging over a regular one and would pay up to 15% more for recyclable and compostable packaging.

“As the world’s fourth largest flexible packaging producer, we know about our responsibility towards the environment as well as the requests of the end consumers. Thus, our goal is to drive a change in the industry for more sustainable packaging solutions,” says Alexander Baumgartner, CEO of Constantia Flexibles.

Ecolutions meets sustainable requirements, reduces the carbon footprint of packaging, focuses on recyclable solutions and decreases the impact on the environment. In addition to the sustainable characteristics, the packaging solutions have all the properties required to protect the packaged products.
