The Flexible Packaging Association (FPA) partnered with PTIS, LLC to provide a holistic view of the sustainability benefits that flexible packaging offers in e-commerce and to quantify the environmental and economic shipping impacts comparing flexible packaging to other formats across a range of products. For the report, five different LCA case studies were developed using the EcoImpact-COMPASS® streamlined LCA software, which allows for quick life cycle comparisons between different package formats and included a wide range of products including shoes, cereal, peanut butter, laundry detergent, and flat mailers.
