WBCSD: SPHERE, An Implementation Guide

SPHERE assists businesses in enhancing their packaging range in alignment with their sustainability goals and provides a distinct method to harmonize conflicting environmental effects.

This approach relies on six key principles for evaluating packaging’s environmental impact, merging circularity and sustainability measures for the first time. These principles encompass ensuring packaging efficiency, reducing climate change impacts and biodiversity loss, increasing circularity and proper end-of-life management, and avoiding harmful substances.

The guide released in 2023 supports packaging design teams and sustainability teams in implementing the SPHERE framework.
