About Us

The Packaging Cockpit Team

We want to make an active contribution to reducing ecological problems caused by packaging.

Goal & Mission

The Packaging Cockpit is a tool that calculates the technical recyclability as well as the life cycle assessment of packaging systems. The calculations can be performed for different countries, allowing country-specific evaluations. In addition, further management functions of the packaging portfolio can be performed.

Our goal with the tool is to make the recyclability of packaging systems transparent and thus help companies to make the right decisions when optimizing their packaging portfolio. The Packaging Cockpit is intended to be applied both internally within companies and to entire supply chains. We integrate a scientific database and scientific methods into software that is suitable for mass data.
