Demand for packaging with the least environmental impact has increased dramatically. The environmental impact of packaging is determined by preparing "environmental life cycle balances". The procedure for preparing environmental profiles is outlined, existing problems are described. When comparing different packagings it is important to consider not only differences in environmental impact, but also to acknowledge how packing requirements are met. To demonstrate the relationship between packaging specifications and environmental impact packaging strategies including externalization and optimization are discussed.
