Packaging design for sustainable development

Most products require packaging to get from the point of production to the point of consumption. Packaging design affects thereby the social, economic, and environmental consequences of most processes in product life cycles.

We apply a holistic perspective on sustainable packaging design that means we consider the interrelation between packaging, products, logistical processes, consumers and waste management. Our research covers a broad area including, for example, the effect of packaging design on logistical efficiency, on the interaction between consumers and products as well as on product safety and security.

The research within the area "Packaging design for sustainable development" contributes to the global goals 2 – Zero hunger, 3 – Good health and well-being11 – Sustainable cities and communities12 – Responsible consumption and production13 – Climate action and 14 – Life below water.

Global goals at packaging logistics - design sciences

For the human being – with sustainable design and technology
People, environments and objects affect each other mutually – at home, at work and in society. At Design Sciences, we start from the UN's global goal of creating sustainable living conditions for humans. For us, it's about designing technologies and environments for the good of man based on sustainability goals.
