About Miljöpack

The Miljöpack group works with packaging and environmental issues

Miljöpack is a group of companies that work together on resource-efficient packaging. The group monitors developments relating to legislation and regulations in Sweden, within the EU and globally, and disseminates topical information.

Miljöpack goal

The group believes that a linked view of packaging and product is essential in order to assess packaging from a sustainability perspective. The packaging’s greatest environmental benefit is by providing the product with optimal protection so that it arrives intact for its intended use.

Key goals for Miljöpack include:

  • promoting the packaging’s contribution o towards a sustainable society
  • monitoring and influencing the development of legislation and regulations relating to packaging and sustainability.
    developing assessment methods that take an overall view of packaging.

Producer responsibility for packaging encompasses both construction requirements and recycling requirements. Miljöpack works with the construction requirements. The Packaging and Newspaper Collection Service, FTI, deals with recycling used packaging. Simply being a member of FTI is not therefore sufficient in order to meet producer responsibility. 

The group is open to all companies with an interest in packaging, from raw materials suppliers to end-users.
Membership of the Miljöpack trade and industry group demonstrates that you are a company that’s works actively to achieve more resource-efficient packaging.
