The Carbon Ready Reckoner (CRR) is an online tool specifically developed to enable interested parties in the food and drink sector to evaluate their carbon impact relating to design changes in:

  • Packaging weight
  • Recycled content or recycling rate
  • Product concentration and palletisation efficiencies in transportation

The CRR facilitates user’s understanding of the impact of design changes and their contribution towards a company’s carbon targets.

The tool allows the user to specify the existing pack, enter changes to its design and receive an assessment of carbon changes associated with the redesign.

A user guide on how to use the tool is available.
