About us

Increasingly more entrepreneurs want to make their packaging more sustainable, because they see the importance and the opportunities of a circular economy for packaging material. This is why the Netherlands Institute for Sustainable Packaging (KIDV) advises and inspires companies with practical advice. We offer factual knowledge, professional training sessions and tools that are based on scientific research. 

Organisation

KIDV has a Supervisory Board, a committee of independent experts and the KIDV office. The Supervisory Board includes representatives of the packaging industry. The committee of independent experts exists of scientists from different universities.

KIDV is financed by the Packaging Waste Fund (Afvalfonds Verpakkingen) with two million euros per year for a period of ten years. This amount comes from the Packaging Waste Management Contributions.
