Sustainability Trends Reshape Packaging Industry Accelerating demands for sustainable products and responsible corporate behavior are reshaping the food, beverage and restaurant industries, and with them the food packaging industry. Consumer expectations are one driver. As early as 2014, a Horizon Media study found 81 percent of mil- lennials expect companies to make public commit- ments to good corporate citizenship.And 66 percent of consumers at large will pay more for products from brands committed to environmentally friendly practices, according to the Nielsen Global Corporate Sustainability Report. A swelling wave of legislation is also mandating sus- tainable actions, worldwide. All this public and private sector momentum is cre- ating openings for innovative food packaging prod- ucts and thinking. Corporate leaders are embracing sustainable food and beverage packaging. A key food packaging trend in 2018 has been toward recycled and recy- clable materials. Leading beverage and restaurant brands have an- swered the call and announced major sustainability-ori- ented commitments in 2018.The trend-setters include: • Coca Cola stated that by 2030 it will collect and recycle one bottle or can for each one it sells; and • McDonald’s announced a commitment to have 100 percent of its guest packaging made from renew- able, recycled or certified sources by 2025. Environmental Push In Australia, national, state and territory environ- ment ministers have agreed on an admirable target: 100 percent of Australian packaging is to be recy- clable, compostable or reusable by 2025.This is only a few short years away, and a major opportunity for the food packaging industry. Vancouver, the first major Canadian city to ban plas- tic straws (effective 2019), has also adopted a ban on the distribution of polystyrene foam cups and con- tainers in that year so users of food packaging are looking for sustainable solutions, now.Vancouver also adopted restrictions on disposable cups and plastic shopping bags.And the city aims to completely elimi- nate the disposal of solid waste by 2040. Consumers everywhere are increasingly looking to companies and brands to take the lead on envi- ronmental issues. And the broad legislative trend to- ward bans and restr ictions on unsustainable materials is encouraging adoption of sustainable materials and practices.
