4evergreen is a cross-industry alliance with the goal of optimizing fibre-based packaging circularity and climate performance. Our overall aim is to increase the recycling rate of fibre-based packaging to 90% by 2030 and characterise our work with a holistic and scientific approach.

Here you will find a repository of our reports, protocols, and guidelines.

Circularity by Design Guideline for Fibre-Based Packaging

This document is the first in a three-part series to be produced by 4evergreen, it is intended for the evaluation of compatibility of materials and components with standard mill processes. The guideline is therefore applicable to fibre-based packaging that is likely to be recycled in standard recycling mills, provided that product-specific regulations of the packaging are observed. Recommendations on the suitability of special recycling processes and recycling including deinking will be implemented in further versions in 2022.
