Abstract:To support a more holistic approach to the contribution of packaging to efficiency and value creation in the product supply chain, a systematic evaluation method – packaging scorecard – has been developed and tested in two case studies. The packaging scorecard is based on research of functional criteria of packaging and the theories of ‘balanced scorecard’, a general management approach to evaluating organizational performance using different perspectives. The results of the case studies indicate that the method can be very useful to get a systematic overview of packaging performance throughout the product supply chain.
