As part of the Joint Initiative for Sustainable Humanitarian Packaging Waste Management, 5 organisations (DRC, Save the Children, HCR, ICRC, BHA) have been working on developing sustainability criteria for packaging which can be used by organisations when writing tender contract. These 25 criteria look at the composition, type, size of packaging and sub packaging as well as issues such as after use & transport.
