AIP Members and industry colleagues are invited to participate in APCO's Sustainable Packaging Guidelines (SPGs) Consultation.
Sustainable design is at the heart of APCO's work to lead industry towards a circular economy for packaging. The Sustainable Packaging Guidelines (SPGs), originally published in 2011, have played a fundamental role in driving sustainable design practices across the industry.
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 29th August 2018 in Sydney to collect views on the sustainable packaging principles and inform the development of the new draft SPGs. APCO 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 your 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
APCO will refine the concepts presented in the documents as they integrate your feedback throughout the consultation process.
