Behind the scenes of packaging and paper


What is eco-design?

Eco-design is an approach that involves integrating environmental criteria right from the product design stage. The product's entire lifecycle is taken into account, from the extraction of raw materials to its manufacture, use, recycling and end-of-life.

In short, the aim is to take into account the life of the packaging from "cradle to grave".

Promoting eco-designed packaging

Léko's mission is to promote the ecological management of household packaging waste.

In this context, its role in eco-design is to promote and support initiatives aimed at designing eco-designed packaging, i.e. packaging with a reduced environmental impact throughout its life cycle. In particular, Léko can support companies in implementing eco-design initiatives by providing tools and technical advice, financing studies, and organizing awareness-raising and recycling training programs.

We can also encourage companies to include environmental criteria in their packaging specifications, and to promote the use of recyclable or reusable packaging.



In accordance with the requirements of article 72 of the AGEC Act and article L. 541-10-12 of the French Environment Code, producers are required to draw up a five-year plan including data on the reduction and reuse, origin of raw materials, consumption of recycled material and recyclability of household packaging and graphic paper. This plan must be revised every 5 years and submitted to Léko. Every 3 years, each eco-organization is required to publish a publicly accessible summary of its members' plans.

Léko supports its members by proposing a common form to be completed, as well as a simplified solution for marketers of less than 20,000 UVC/year: a quick form covering the 3 compulsory themes stipulated by French regulations.
