Big Sustainability Moves Require ESG Mastery

Brands face increasing pressure to implement sustainable packaging solutions from consumer preferences and a rapidly evolving regulatory environment both in the U.S. and abroad, all while keeping prices in check to remain competitive in the marketplace. 

Whether a packaging team is reacting to extended producer responsibility (EPR) regulations or an emphasis on environmentally friendly packaging as part of company-wide ESG initiatives, Adept has the resources, tools and expertise to guide companies through every stage of this journey.

Services to Meet you Where You Are

Adept Group’s sustainable packaging consultants provide expertise through a broad range of services, including strategy development, goal setting, life cycle assessment (LCA), packaging design & development, supplier validation and sustainability consulting for brands in the CPG, food & beverage, life science and industrial/hard goods industries

Meaningful progress toward sustainability goals often calls for significant change to the status quo. 

While many packaging teams have strong relationships with traditional suppliers, our relationships with innovative suppliers allow us to identify sustainable packaging materials (biodegradable packaging, recyclable materials, etc.) that best fit our clients’ needs and budgets.

Experience Led, Backed by Data

Thorough analysis of the impact packaging has on the environment throughout its life cycle, from material extraction through end of life, provides our clients’ packaging departments with solutions backed by data that helps secure buy-in from leadership across their organizations, facilitates third-party certification, and enables brands to communicate their sustainability progress in their marketing claims to consumers and ESG reporting to consumers, investors and other key stakeholders.

The impact of our sustainability consulting is as varied as the needs and goals of our clients. Our ESG consultants helped: 

  • A major beverage brand convert 155 million bottles from virgin material to post-consumer recycled PET
  • Converted a CPG client to new packaging that reduced corrugate material use by 25% and plastic shipper bag size by 50%, 
  • Developed a sustainable beverage packaging solution that helped a carbonated soft drink business reduce closure weight by 0.08 grams per closure

From material reduction measured in thousands of tons per year to leading sustainable packaging solutions that also drive hundreds of thousands of dollars in cost reduction, our Adept sustainability engineers can tailor solutions to move the needle on the metrics most important to our clients’ overall goals.
