Australian Packaging Covenant

The Australian Packaging Covenant is a voluntary initiative by Government and Industry, to reduce the environmental effects of packaging on the Environment. It is designed to minimise the environmental impacts arising from the disposal of used packaging, conserve resources through better design and production processes and facilitate the re-use and recycling of used packaging materials. The Australian Institute of Packaging is a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant.
