Book: Sustainable Packaging? – Packaging sostenibile? -ISBN: 9788842222736
Author: Claudia De Giorgi
Packaging represents not only a protective envelope, but also an important tool to convey other intangible values, such as the relationship between content and container, and between the container and the territory. The book presents a multicriteria evaluation system to measure the sustainability and quality of a typical food or wine product, in which are considered the environmental, social, and economic aspects of the product throughout its entire life cycle: a model which can be used in other regions in order to give food and wine producers, especially producers of typical foodstuffs, a self-evaluation tool to make informed choices about how to direct and re-direct their production.
