About the Netherlands Institute for Sustainable Packaging

Increasingly more entrepreneurs want to work with sustainable packaging, because they see the importance and the opportunities of a circular economy for packaging material. That is why the Netherlands Institute for Sustainable Packaging advises and inspires companies with tailor-made advice. We offer factual knowledge and practical tools, based on applied scientific research, current trends and knowledge of the packaging chain.
