Ready to report: How Singapore firms are preparing for new packaging mandate

April 17, 2019 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


With Singapore set to introduce mandatory reporting requirements in 2020 in a bid to raise awareness of packaging waste, companies tell Eco-Business how they are preparing for the mandate, and what they are doing to limit their packaging waste.

EcoVadis's insight:

From a sourcing / purchasing perspective, packaging is really the perfect commodity, where Sustainability/CSR can help companies reduce over-specifications, drive innovations and allign “environmental impact reduction” and “cost reduction”. With consumer concern about harmful chemicals leaching from plastics also on the rise, it's not surprising that government, producers and retailers have felt obliged to respond.
