Environmental Impact Calculator

This calculator can be used to evaluate two types of scenario:

1. You can evaluate the environmental impact of your specific usage of packaging systems, as well as the potential for damage reduction (based on the Fraunhofer study"titled “The Sustainability of Packaging Systems for Fruit and Vegetable Transport in Europe Based on Life-Cycle Analysis”).

2. You can calculate the potential savings you could make in terms of resources by using reusable plastic crates for shipping (which ensure better damage resistance), and also estimate the level of damage reduction that you could obtain for your goods (based on the Fraunhofer-study titled “Determination of Spoilage Levels of Fresh Fruit and Vegetables According to the Type of Packaging”).
