At LC Packaging, we have developed a Carbon Footprint Calculator for FIBCs in collaboration with The Footprinters. The new tool allows us to calculate the carbon footprint of each different FIBC much more precisely. It also shows the savings possible when using recycled materials or switching to reuse.
The LC Carbon Footprint Calculator delivers an exact carbon footprint based on each customers’ individual situation, a first in the packaging industry! It requires various data regarding the FIBC, such as its weight, material composition, transport details, (re)use scenarios and end-of-life treatment.
Footprint information of LC Packaging’s key FIBC production partners is already available in the LC Carbon Footprint Calculator, allowing for an even more precise and personal footprint calculation. The LC Carbon Footprint Calculator provides as output:
The output can be displayed in an easy-to-print format. That way, our customers receive a clear environmental business case with the footprint of their FIBCs and the most suitable circular packaging solution. A tailor-made calculation for a tailor-made packaging solution.
Are you curious about the footprint of your FIBCs and how you can decrease it? Contact your local office or contact person at LC Packaging to find out more.
At LC Packaging, we have decided to embed sustainability into our core business and embrace our purpose: Contribute to a world without waste. The waste of valuable products during storage and transportation, and packaging waste. We want to work in such a way we do not limit the next generation in the choices they want to make or the resources they have available. By making it our mission to become a leader in sustainable packaging, we believe that we can make that impact.
