APCO seeking guideline consultation

The Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation is inviting Australian Institute of Packaging members and industry colleagues to participate in its Sustainable Packaging Guidelines (SPGs) Consultation.

The Sustainable Packaging Guidelines (SPGs) were originally published in 2011, and have played a role in driving sustainable design practices across the industry.

A spokesperson from APCO says, “The SPGs are currently under review to ensure they effectively assist the industry to review and optimise their packaging. With the recent announcement of the National Packaging Targets, the review of the SPGs is an opportunity to ensure that APCO delivers detailed and targeted resources to support you in our common journey towards the targets.”

APCO facilitated a workshop on August 29 in Sydney to collect views on the sustainable packaging principles and inform the development of the new draft SPGs.

It is now opening the draft SPGs for industry consultation to ensure the new proposed format and attached resources meet your needs and expectations. Your input into this process will be fundamental to ensure deliverable resources that are adapted to your business and help you achieve your packaging sustainability objectives.

To provide views, you can either complete the Sustainable Packaging Guidelines Survey, participate in one of the Sustainable Packaging Guidelines Consultation workshops, or email a free-form submission to [email protected]

APCO says it will refine the concepts presented in the documents as it integrates feedback throughout the consultation process.
