EcoDesign - Gerresheimer

Sustainable packaging product solutions

The volume of global packaging is steadily increasing and with it the negative impact on the environment. The transition to a circular economy is of essential importance to us. We want to improve the environmental impact of our product throughout their whole life cycle - including production, transport, use and disposal.

Our products play a crucial role for the safe transport as well as storage and medication of our customers' products. In many cases, our packaging solution is an integral part of the system, without some medicines would not be as user-friendly and safe. We lay the foundations for a user-friendly, safe and high-quality product early in development processand want to ensure that its environmental impact are considered from the beginning.

Our target

By 2023, we will develop Gerresheimer EcoDesign principles and apply them to 100% of our new product developments.

Our approach

Our packaging solutions are brought to market and disposed of in conjunction with our customers' products. Therefore, close cooperation with our customers is key when adressing  material efficiency, energy efficiency, waste avoidance, recyclability and disposability, and logistics-friendliness of our products.

At the same time, product safety as well as functionality must always be ensured. Consequently, our approach is designed to meet regulatory and customer requirements and the needs of end consumers as well as environmental sustainability requirements.
