As corporate social responsibility (CSR) continues to loom large in the minds of retailers, brands and consumers, this report shines the spotlight on the role P-O-P plays in today’s sustainability conscious retail environment.

How have P-O-P designers and manufacturers adapted their practices to improve the sustainability credentials of display equipment?

We also explore the opportunities for P-O-P to help brands and retailers convey their CSR messaging.

Global Trends
Cardboard as a channel

During the last decade there has been a real shift in consumers’ expectations of how brands approach sustainability and waste.

Plastics have been the real villain of the piece since The Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s 2016 study famously revealed that there will be more plastic than fish in our seas by 2050. This has intensified the focus on brands’ sustainability efforts, the ingredients they use in their products and the materials and practices they use in their production processes.

Examining Material Evidence
The Carbon Fingerprint

A report by Imperial College London. 

Only 2% of British people consider plastic, compared to other materials used in packaging, to contribute the least greenhouse gases to the environment from its production, use, and post use treatment. Whilst in absolute numbers it is a fact the least impactful.

Plastics do have a large carbon impact - accounting for 3.8% of global greenhouse gases emissions - but it is wrong to assume that alternative packaging materials would perform better, and it is important to consider the carbon benefits that arise from plastics use.
