Challenge

They were looking for high-end packaging boxes to be delivered in Europe. These boxes could be shipped from China by sea, and in case of higher demand or delays in the supply chain, the boxes had to be transported by air freight, resulting in a carbon footprint of up to 50 times higher.  Mr. Porter asked for fast lead times at low costs. 

Results
We implemented local production at a processing plant using geothermal and solar energy to avoid the impact of shipping from China and ensure more security in the supply chain. Also, a specific paper was developed with a finish that has a subtle balance between gloss and matte and a texture between paper and fabric. This paper is made locally at a paper manufacturer that uses hydropower from their local downstream river.
