The Sustainable Products and Packaging team at the Centre for Design and Society engages in academic research, industry projects and teaching under the research areas;
- Sustainable products and services
- Packaging sustainability
- Food systems
The goal of the group is to contribute to the body of knowledge in these areas through novel mixed methods research, life cycle assessment, tool development, design advice, marketing engagement and strategy. The team has a long history of working with a wide range of academic, industry, community and government partners. Sustainable Products and Packaging projects often require cross disciplinary teams from across RMIT, external academic institutions and industry, for more effective research approaches to tackle multi dimensional issues and problems in the areas of design and sustainability.
