Impact Transparancy demand increases every year

The demand for credible environmental impact evidence increases every year. With the EU's CSRD and Anti-greenwashing law (Green Claims Directive) impact transparancy in packaging becomes a must to stay in business. This requires credible footprint calculations at scale.

Credible results, require credible input

Every footprint calculation requires credible evidence. The upcoming EU law on green washing will prohibit green claims that are not backed up by good evidence. ESG Reporting legislation required annual improvement in input data. Since we see that raw supplier data is not widely available across the packaging industry, it can easily take 6-12 months to get high quality data from your supplier.

Step 1: Start, Step 2: Improve

With Pickler we help you already start in an efficient manner to collect the right amount of data and help you to fill in the blanks in the meantime with market average impact data. Front runners already start requesting reliable footprint data from their suppliers, since they know it can take some time.

Meanwhile the regulations will become stricter on the amount of assumptions that a company is able to make to create product footprint claim. Therefore, we suggest companies start as soon as possible by collecting high quality data from their value chain in order to not miss the fast demand increase for sustainable products.
