The general office of the State Council recently printed and distributed the notice on Further Strengthening the management of excessive packaging of goods (hereinafter referred to as the notice), which clearly and resolutely curbed the phenomenon of excessive packaging of goods and put forward requirements for the packaging industry. Packaging has the functions of protecting, displaying, storing and transporting goods, but excessive packaging exceeds the normal functional requirements of packaging, which is manifested by too many packaging layers, too large packaging gaps, too high packaging costs, improper material selection, etc. Excessive packaging of goods not only increases the burden of consumers, but also causes waste of resources and environmental pollution, and also contributes to the extravagant social atmosphere.
The circular requires that technological innovation should be strengthened in the field of packaging, and packaging enterprises should actively provide overall packaging solutions with reasonable design, material saving, convenient recycling and economic applicability, independently develop low gram weight, high strength and functional packaging materials and production equipment, and innovate and develop integrated packaging products for commodities and express delivery. Packaging enterprises should give full play to their bridge role in promoting simple packaging and advocating rational consumption, and promote the practice of the concept of simplicity and moderation in packaging design, commodity production and other upstream and downstream links.
The packaging industry plays an important role in curbing the phenomenon of excessive packaging of goods. It should conscientiously implement the requirements of the notice, consciously abide by the relevant laws, regulations and standards to limit excessive packaging of goods, and promote the formation of a good atmosphere of consciously resisting excessive packaging of goods in the upstream and downstream. It should mainly work from the following aspects:
First, we should strengthen technological innovation and enhance innovation capability. Packaging enterprises should increase investment in scientific and technological innovation, accelerate the tackling and transformation of green technologies, actively research and develop new packaging materials that are conducive to resource conservation, promote new technologies, processes and equipment that meet the requirements of energy conservation and environmental protection, and apply the green and low-carbon concept throughout the whole process of product research and development and design, raw material procurement, production and manufacturing, logistics and storage, after-sales service, recycling and treatment, so as to enhance the endogenous innovation power of enterprises, We will deepen industrial collaborative innovation and form a sustained driving force of innovation to support the green transformation and development of the economy and society.
The second is to promote green design and achieve source reduction. Packaging enterprises should strengthen green design, reduce the consumption of materials and the complexity of design, pay attention to the environmental impact and carbon footprint of the whole process from design, production and waste, optimize the product structure, increase the proportion of single materials, low gram weight and high strength materials, separable and reusable materials, effectively improve the recycling performance of packaging products, and achieve packaging reduction from the source, Thus affecting and driving the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain to achieve green and low-carbon development.
Third, fulfill social responsibilities and resist excessive packaging. Packaging enterprises should fully understand the harm of excessive packaging of goods, take the initiative to act and fulfill their responsibilities, and take the initiative to carry out self-examination to limit excessive packaging of goods. We should strictly implement mandatory national standards, optimize product packaging design, supply the market with higher quality, green, environmental protection and low-carbon packaging, jointly create a good atmosphere of simplicity, moderation, low-carbon, environmental protection and green development, and be the pioneer, practitioner and advocate of resisting excessive packaging of goods.
