GlobalPSC Member Profile – Australian Packaging Covenant

Posted by GlobalPSC at 1:05 pm, August 13th, 2012Comments14

The Australian Packaging Covenant (APC) is a sustainable packaging initiative which aims to change the culture of business to design more sustainable packaging, increase recycling rates and reduce packaging litter. It is an agreement between government, industry and community groups to work together to find and fund solutions to address packaging sustainability issues.

Organisations sign the Covenant to signal their commitment to:

  • Design packaging that is more resource efficient and more recyclable;
  • Increase the recovery and recycling of used packaging from households and away-from-home sources; and
  • Take action to reduce the incidence and impacts of litter.

The Covenant aims to ensure that all companies involved in the packaging chain play their part by delivering on these commitments.

Currently over 900 organisations (business and industry, government and non-government) are signatories to the Australian Packaging Covenant.
