Welcome to OptimEco’s kit, an Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ) initiative. The OptimEco kit is designed to complement the information provided on the OptimEco.ca portal. It provides solid arguments for getting your teams’ commitment to an eco-design process as well as practical avenues for taking action now! The kit is intended for ÉEQ’s contributing companies, their suppliers and manufacturers of containers, packaging and printed matter.
Based on ecodesign strategies and internationally-recognized norms and standards to meet today's packaging optimization challenges, OptimEco.ca is an innovative tool that provides companies that do business in Canada with support in designing packaging and printed matter using a sustainable development approach that results in savings, innovation and a reduced environmental footprint.
The portal recognizes and promotes optimization initiatives registered in the OptimAction interactive tool ÉEQ developed in partnership with Quantis in order to allow companies to visualize and communicate the benefits of each initiative. With this tool, the user can document optimization initiatives and detail the results using qualitative and quantitative indicators, including reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and transportation optimization, among others, throughout the packaging item’s life cycle.
The production of the OptimEco kit was made possible thanks to the contribution of the following partners:
