Sustainable packaging guiding framework and practices


This Technical Reference (TR) specifies guidelines, criteria and best practices for implementing the 3R (Reduce, Re-use, Recycle) for business-to-business and business-to-consumer packaging, taking into consideration practices that are sustainable in Singapore’s context. It covers the life cycle of packaging, starting from upstream packaging design to downstream end-of-life management that are applicable across industries. This TR also covers relevant case studies and references such as communication with consumers on proper management of packaging at disposal.

While adopting the recommendations of this TR is voluntary, provisions have been made to cover all consumer and business packaging, including secondary and tertiary packaging, but excludes primary packaging that comes into contact with medicines.
