When developing sustainable solutions at Nefab, we take a holistic approach that includes all aspects of the supply chain to minimize environmental impact. By working collectively on a global and local level with our customers to reduce the amount of packaging needed per solution through optimization, we increase recycled material content and develop fully recyclable solutions.
"With our global reach and local services, we are in a unique position to drive major sustainability improvements for our customers and quantify them using our LCA tool, GreenCalc."

Broad, Multi-material Portfolio
As a result, Nefab provides complete, multi-material packaging solutions, engineered to mitigate environmental impact while maintaining the highest possible performance. On top of this, we continue to invest further in circular packaging solutions and returnable flows. Our broad portfolio of connected devices, plays a key part in this strategy. It allows Nefab to track and trace packaging in real time around the world. By measuring its temperature, shock, humidity, CO2 eq emissions, and more, we can ensure that optimal conditions are met during shipment.
Life Cycle Analysis
Another important digital tool in this regard is GreenCalc, a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) tool that identifies potential CO2 eq and cost savings of a packaging solution. GreenCalc looks at a material’s entire lifecycle, from cradle to grave and calculates the environmental impact for the packaging production, transportation, and end of life phases.
