GreenMoney is Australia’s first kerbside recycling rewards program used by thousands of households. GreenMoney acts as a platform to assist government and waste managers delivering more engaging waste education to both households and businesses in order to bring about valuable landfill diversion savings.

To change waste behaviour, the GreenMoney platform offers Australian households incentives for improving their waste and recycling behaviour. Behavioural science and incentives play an important role in capturing the attention of households and individuals, providing positive reinforcement to achieve desired behavioural outcomes.

Lastly, GreenMoney allows Australian households to reduce cost of living pressures and earn up to $400 in savings per annum, simply  by being more responsible with their waste and recycling

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.
