    Good? Better? Best!

  • Innovative Spitze: Die Gewinner beim Deutschen Verpackungspreis 2021

    This is what winners look like! The jury of the German Packaging Award 2021 has announced the winners of the major European showcase for packaging. A total of 52 innovations from six countries won through in the competition to find the best solutions organised by the German Packaging Institute (dvi). The award ceremony will take place on 28 September 2021 as part of FACHPACK. The winners of the Gold Award, which further honours particularly ground-breaking innovations from among the already successful packaging award winners, will also be announced here. 

  • Resounding public verdict: packaging is more sustainable and better than ever before.

    The latest results of a representative population survey commissioned by the German Packaging Institute (Deutsches Verpackungsinstitut e. V. (dvi)) show that the multitude of innovations in the field of sustainable packaging in recent years are being well received by consumers. Nearly half of respondents – 44% – perceive clear progress in environmental friendliness of packaging, and only 15.7% see it as having regressed. Moreover, three out of four respondents, 74.6%, confirm that this progress has been achieved either with no compromise in functionality and convenience – or even enhancing it. Even so, the dvi recommends further measures to implement the circular economy in packaging, and use of objective life cycle assessments to evaluate sustainability.
