Is dissolvable packaging the future?

Dissolvable packaging is designed to replace conventional plastic bags, films, labels, and pouches. This end-of-life solution is non-toxic and leaves no trace of microplastics. Upstream innovation means this packaging 'designs out' the waste often associated with plastic bags, and also means consumers are not forced to deal with finding a solution to plastic waste. Use our Foresights report to understand the future of dissolvable packaging, and formulate winning strategies for the road ahead. This report covers:
  • Drawbacks and advantages to dissolvable packaging
  • Current industry applications
  • Consumer insight into priorities surrounding sustainability and packaging
  • The pathway and considerations for dissolvable packing in terms of mass adoption and commercialization
Read our full report to gather key insights that will better inform your decision making, and help your business thrive in 2022 and beyond.

The ‘2030 Brew a Better World’ scheme, launched today, builds on a previous set of sustainability targets set out by the company in 2009. The Dutch brewer’s latest targets include:

  • Cutting carbon emissions by 30% before 2030 and achieving zero waste-to-landfill before 2025 (currently 71% of Heineken’s 166 waste sites are landfill-free)
  • Ensuring 65% of country leadership teams in each region comprise of regional nationals and, by 2023, establishing plans to  eliminate gender pay gaps globally
  • Ensuring two zero-alcohol options are available in the majority of markets by 2023

“We know that we can only thrive if our people, the planet and the communities around us thrive,” said Heineken CEO Dolf van den Brink. “We are moving into a decade with even more complex challenges and our Brew a Better World vision for 2030 raises the bar and enables faster progress towards a net zero, fairer and healthier world.”

Today, Heineken’s share price reached its highest point since February, despite Q1 results that included a 10% beer volumes drop in Europe.
