Join the APCO team for our weekly Community Meetings to explore the sustainability topics that matter most to our network.

This week, to coincide with the launch of our new Member resource, Understanding Life Cycle Assessments for Packaging in Australia, we are exploring Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and how it works in partnership with other packaging sustainability tools, including PREP and the Sustainable Packaging Guidelines (SPGs).


LCA provides a practical and popular methodology for businesses to better understand the sustainability of their products and packaging. It offers reliable data on the whole of life impacts of products and packaging, and can empower business to make informed, evidence-based decision and claims.


When used alongside other packaging sustainability tools as part of a holistic approach to packaging sustainability, LCA can help to pinpoint the best approach to addressing the environmental trade-offs that may exist between packaging choices.


Topics for discussion include:

  • The process, benefits and challenges of using an LCA for your organisation.
  • How LCA can be used in conjunction with other APCO resources, including the Packaging Recycling Evaluation Portal (PREP) and the Sustainable Packaging Guidelines (SPGs).
  • Practical case studies and introduction to resources that will help get you started on the journey.
