Design for Intended Use (DIU) is a process of thinking and the final result of the packaging design that unambiguously shows and guarantees the intended use of the packaged product by the intended user. We focus this EmpackNL on Design for Intended Use (DIU) as a means to tackle the environmental problems in the world of packaging. How can DIU support the responsible collection of emptied packaging? What information helps the consumer user in the unambiguous disposal of his / her packaging after use?

Web Retail Packaging (WRP) is the packaging of products that are ordered online and then delivered, directly at the consumer’s home or via a collection point. WRP is an essential factor for the further stable growth of home shopping, especially with regard to physical products. What does the future of WRP look like and which packaging aspects mean risks or opportunities?

What do Dutch consumers actually think of sustainable packaging and who, according to them, is responsible for the sustainable packaging of food and drinks? How can chain players such as the packaging producer, food producer and supermarket respond to this? ABN AMRO presents the results of its consumer research and interviews.

ABN AMRO believes it is important that our society becomes increasingly sustainable. They want to speed up this process and are therefore constantly looking for sustainable solutions, investments and initiatives that really help. They are happy to let you know what they are doing and how you can contribute yourself.
