2022 Sustainable Packaging Report

Consumer demand for sustainable packaging was already on the rise before the COVID-19 pandemic brought the value of healthy living—for both people and the planet—into even sharper focus. Spending more time at home also showed many consumers just how much packaging waste ends up in trash bins destined for landfills, inspiring an ever-louder call for change.

In this report, WGB takes a closer look at the ways in which leading companies—from grocery retailers to CPGs and suppliers—are responding to demand for eco-friendly packaging.
