Cloud-based solution benchmarks packaging design alternatives against sustainability metrics
CINCINNATI, OH, Sept 9, 2015 — Trayak, the authority on product and packaging sustainability, announces that they have acquired ownership of COMPASS®, a comparative packaging assessment solution. Trayak and GreenBlue have partnered for more than four years in developing COMPASS with sponsorship from the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC). GreenBlue will continue as a strategic partner and an authorized representative of Trayak’s software solutions.
COMPASS empowers packaging designers to make more informed material selection and design decisions early in the development process. Accessible through the Cloud, COMPASS allows packaging designers to quickly and confidently evaluate, quantify, and compare the human and environmental impact of design and material decisions throughout a product’s complete life-cycle. The program provides comparative reports of package design options, based on fossil fuel consumption, water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and human and aquatic toxicity.
The results are more informed material selections and design decisions early in the development process, which optimizes packaging sustainability and bottom-line profitability.
Trayak President & CEO, Prashant Jagtap comments:
“COMPASS is the industry’s most trusted tool for obtaining optimal packaging sustainability. Trayak is committed to the on-going advancement of COMPASS along with related tools and services. While we are naturally excited by this announcement, the true beneficiaries are current and future COMPASS users who will be seeing responsive support along with new levels of innovation and functionality.”
