Sustainable Packaging Guidelines

This white paper, published by the Australian Packaging Covenant, focuses on optimisation of consumer packaging to make efficient use of resources and reduce environmental impact without compromising product quality and safety.

The paper states that packaging must be designed to meet market and consumer needs, while minimising net impact in a cost-effective way.

It notes that packaging should be designed to maximise its potential for recovery and recycling, and the signatories of the Australian Packaging Covenant must develop the most appropriate method and schedule for reviewing new and existing packaging.
