AIP & Empauer partner to deliver Lifecycle Assessment Decision Package for SMEs across Australasia

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has partnered with Empauer, a leading sustainability software company, to offer a comprehensive and cost-effective Lifestyle Assessment Decision (LCA) Decision Package for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.

AIP and Empauer have entered an exclusive MOU, providing Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) to SMEs to ensure that they are making informed, and science-based decisions when selecting packaging materials.

The driving force behind this collaboration is recognition of the challenges SMEs face. Through its SME training programs, the AIP identified a pressing need for affordable and customised LCA solutions that simplify the often-complex process of undertaking sustainability assessments for packaging design.

The report part of the package can then be used for internal decisions, including the selection of packaging materials and components and the shift towards more sustainable alternatives within the business.

This innovative LCA Decision Package will enable businesses to make informed and sustainable decisions regarding the packaging design they utilise and choices in selecting the most appropriate packaging material format. It will provide AIP Members and the wider industry access to the latest tools and expertise, enabling them to reduce their environmental footprint and make responsible choices in line with global sustainability goals.

The main benefit to SMEs of using the AIP & Empauer LCA Decision Package is that businesses don’t have to understand all the complexities of LCAs. They will be provided with comparison information and assistance to understand the environmental impact of each packaging material choice based on selected LCA parameters.
