« The packaging ecodesign approach for our La Parisienne bleach that was assessed using the OptimAction tool enabled us to quantify the environmental benefits of reducing the packaging’s mass and even led to logistical benefits for our retailers in terms of space savings. OptimAction also helped us measure our progress in packaging ecodesign and better communicate these advances to our customers.  »
