The Understanding Packaging (UP) Scorecard Measures Food Packaging Sustainability

The Understanding Packaging (UP) Scorecard is a free online tool that measures food packaging materials to help people make sustainable purchasing decisions. The easy-to-use web-based tool assesses the sustainability impacts of common foodware and food packaging.

Pollution, chemicals of concern, climate, water use, sustainable sourcing, and recoverability are scored by the science-based tool which was developed in collaboration by food service companies, NGOs and technical experts. The UP Scorecard is built on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) science, yet gives easy-to-understand results for easy decision making.
