Calculation tool for CO2 impact of reusable packaging

This calculation tool gives an overview of all the chain steps of reusable packaging and provides an indication of CO2 emissions and the integral costs, compared to one-way packaging. The tool was developed by Utrecht University and Partners for Innovation on behalf of the KIDV. With the help of the calculation tool, it can be made clear where the tipping point for multiple use of a packaging is compared to single-use packaging. By using various options, such as the number of rotations, the transport distance and the type of means of transport, it is possible to optimise the CO2 impact and the integral costs.
