Abstract

Switzerland′s largest retailer′s environmental programme to reduce the environmental burden of packaging is outlined. It is based on a system of eco‐balances – analyses from a narrow range of criteria of strictly quantifiable measurements of energy use, air and water consumption in raw material extraction and production, carbon dioxide emissions and landfill volumes.
