2.5.1 Specific identification method

Note: skip to step 2.5.2 for ABOM method.

Where the specific identification method is used, the weight of each packaging material should be multiplied by the quantity sold as noted in your spreadsheet or data management tool to arrive at the total weight of each material per product. The columns containing the total kilograms per material sub-category can then be summed to arrive at the kilograms to be reported. This could be organized in your spreadsheet as follows:

Per product Total
Product Sales quantity Other printed material (kg) Paper laminates (kg) Boxboard (kg) Other printed material (kg) Paper laminates (kg) Boxboard (kg)
Product A 100 0.05 0.002 0.1 5 0.2 10
Product B 500 0.1 0.05 0.05 50 25 25
