Simon Lockrey

Lockrey is the Research Area Leader - Sustainable Products and Services and a Research Fellow at the Centre for Design. He will explain how Nestlé Oceania used life cycle assessment (LCA) to apply a staged strategy to quantify the environmental impacts of packaging in order to ensure the accuracy of their environmental marketing information about product packaging.

Dr Karli Verghese is the Program Director, Sustainable Products and Packaging at the Centre for Design. Her presentation will discuss identifying and integrating packaging sustainability evaluation tools for the product-packaging development process. She will highlight the different types of evaluation tools for packaging sustainability that can be used to measure the life cycle impacts of products and packaging, such as checklists, guidelines and life-cycle-based LCA software.

Verghese will also discuss why it is important to integrate these selected evaluation tools early in the product-packaging development process and how the tools identify and support packaging’s role within the corporate sustainability strategy.
