ISTA's Responsible Packaging by Design (RPbD) Guide
The Responsible Packaging by Design (RPbD) Guide is now available. The RPbD Guide is a step-by-step process management standard for the design, testing and qualification of responsible packaging that meets industry, consumer and regulatory expectations. It has been developed by industry leaders and vetted by companies, NGO’s and government experts.
“Until now, there has not been one unified standard that

ISTA offers a Responsible Packaging by Design Training Program with a Professional Certificate of Training for people who are interested in learning how to implement the process in their company. Whether seeking to test the waters, training to implement the program, or obtain a professional certificate, the RPbD training program can help you gain the skills and knowledge you need to build your company’s reputation as an environmentally and socially conscious corporate citizen – and drive profitability. A full day in-person session followed by a half day web meeting is available. Contact ISTA Headquarters for available dates or to request that a Training Program be held at your company.
