We are driven by the urgency for change.
We reduce the impact of every product we work on by helping producers deliver the most responsible packaging solutions possible.
Root supports the world’s most prolific producers of goods and packaging to become fit for a regenerative future.
We are actively working towards a world where all organisations use less and are regenerative, inclusive and kind to people and planet.

We use decades of technical, environmental and creative expertise to deliver industry-leading analysis, strategy and consultancy. This is driven by our Design for Life methodology and informed by our unique data store  – Root Knowledge Bank.

We work in partnership with your team to create low-impact circular packaging solutions and blueprints for business sustainability. Sustainable packaging isn’t a box ticking exercise. It is integral to your brand’s future. It is integral to the planet’s future survival. We are independent which means we will objectively critique all aspects of the packaging cycle. From legislation to implementation, we pride ourselves on providing clear, workable and immediate actions.

Design For Life is our unique and highly-regarded science-based methodology for measuring the holistic impact of packaging on the planet and its people. It drives every single analysis and strategy project we deliver.
We go above and beyond Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) using our own carefully designed analytics to assess real-world impact across people and planet. Our core team and network of experts draw on our vast Knowledge Bank of technical, environmental and creative data as well as their own cutting-edge expertise in their fields to evaluate and create robust reports and practical working strategies.
Built up over decades, our data bank is a unique resource that we continually tap into and draw on when needed. When we work with you, we grant you access to this vast collection of information and evaluation.
We invest 25% of our time each year to stay up to date with innovations throughout the lifecycle of packaging. From design and manufacturing through to collection and reuse or recycling. Every year we attend the most relevant events worldwide specific to sustainability, packaging and resource management. We send our enthusiastic, expert team to relevant site visits, training and research trips to get to the root of subjects including zero waste and waste management in developing countries to ensure we are always at the forefront.
