ZESPRI International

ZESPRI International, the world's largest marketer and exporter of kiwifruit wants to work with packaging suppliers to reduce the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions related to their packaging. In 2010 Catalyst® completed a Life Cycle Assessment on the GHG emissions and primary energy associated with the packaging used to deliver fruit to an overseas market.

In 2011 the supply chains for two key markets were mapped and the fate of packaging, and its associated GHG emissions, through the supply chains was determined.

In 2014 this work was published in the International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment. To access the paper click here.

“Kimberly and Wymond have produced a comprehensive assessment of our main packaging configurations which has given us a real insight into where to focus our future efforts to reduce our carbon footprint."
