Abstract: This study seeks to investigate into current design strategies being implemented in the packaging industry of Singapore during the product development stages. Packaging waste accounted for 20% of total solid wasted disposed in Singapore in 2009. Therefore, the Singaporean government has developed several initiatives to reduce solid waste that are directly related to the packaging industry, which allowed us to observe and analyse the Industrial Design responses to some of these programs on its early stages. In this context, the case study methodology was used in the analysis of multinationals and local companies in Singapore. The outcomes of this study include a critical analysis of the design strategies being used by the Packaging Industry in Singapore towards sustainable development; a profile of the consumers of the sector studied; as well as a profile of the packaging industry of Singapore regarding sustainable development initiatives with respect to local and global scenarios.
