An updated definition of sustainable packaging has been published by a specialist industry working group.

The Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) said the amended version of its document “embodies a stronger life cycle focus for material health concerns”.

The criteria that sustainable packaging "is made from materials healthy to all probable end of life scenarios" was modified to read "is made from materials healthy throughout the life cycle."

This and a few other minor changes were recently ratified by the organisation’s executive committee.
