To deliver long-term value to all of our stakeholders and to transform renewable resources into packaging products people depend on everyday.
How we can achieve this
- Designing packaging products that protect and promote goods, enabling international commerce and to deliver value to businesses.
- Improving our environmental footprint and contributing to carbon neutrality and circular economy through complying with International standards, Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation’s （APCO) Sustainable Packaging Guidelines and sustainable operations.
- Tackling issues in our supply chain by building strong and trusting relationships with all of our manufacturers.
ISO 14001- International Standard on Environmental Management Systems
Our environmental management system is in line with international standards.
- This international standard stipulates the establishment of an Environmental Management System (EMS) that is regularly audited and operates in line with the requirements set out in ISO 14001.
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) accredited factories
Sustainability is a journey- we are committed to traceability and know exactly where our materials come from.
- The FSC’s global forest certification system guarantees that an organisation’s forest products come from responsibly managed sources.
- The Chain of Custody Certification, in particular provides a guarantee about the production and source of FSC certified products along every stage of the supply chain.
- For our manufacturers to have been accredited, independent certification bodies assess the forest managers and forest product companies against the FSC standards.
We, as a member of APCO, integrate its Sustainable Packaging Guidelines into our business to achieve a circular economy. 10 principles that make up the Sustainable Packaging Guidelines are design for recovery; Optimise material efficiency; Design to reduce product waste; Eliminate hazardous materials; Use recycled materials; Use renewable materials; Design to minimise litter; Design for transport efficiency; Design for accessibility; and provide consumer information on sustainability.
In terms of our products, we are continuously innovating to offer plastic eliminated or plastic reduced packaging, compostable or recyclable packaging and use plant-based ink and aqueous varnish for offset printing on paper packaging to work collaboratively to meet 2025 National Packaging Targets:
• 100% of all Australia’s packaging will be reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025 or earlier;
• 70% of Australia’s plastic packaging will be recycled or composted by 2025;
• 50% average recycled content will be included across all packaging by 2025; and
• Problematic and unnecessary single-use plastic packaging will be phased out through design, innovation or introduction of alternatives.
