eQopack | A packaging assessment tool to drive sustainable innovation
More sustainable packaging is just a few clicks away. eQopack is a new tool that helps companies embed ecodesign into the heart of the packaging development process and deploy data-driven packaging choices at scale. This intuitive tool makes robust environmental data accessible to packaging designers, supporting them in making smarter, more resilient design decisions and empowering them to develop sustainable packaging solutions.
With this SaaS tool (Software as a Service), businesses can easily measure the environmental footprint of different packaging and turn robust environmental metrics into actionable insights to drive sustainable packaging innovation.
eQopack was developed in partnership with Kleis Technology, specialized in IT digitization, advising and developing innovative digital technologies in partnership with business specialists.
Quantis equips packaging engineers with a user-friendly ecodesign platform to embed environmental sustainability within the packaging innovation process.
Understanding packaging’s environmental performance
With eQopack, packaging engineers can easily measure and simulate the environmental footprint of packaging. This ecodesign platform was developed by the experts at Quantis and based on the latest data from leading sources and a science-driven methodology. It’s a powerful tool that assesses a pack’s performance across each life cycle stage (from raw materials to end-of-life) with robust metrics, including 17 LCA-based impact categories (carbon footprint, land use, resource depletion, aggregated single score and more) and 8 indicators (reusability, recycled content, pack to product weight ratio and more) to help companies or packaging engineers to easily compare different packaging alternatives.
