APCO commissioned the Institute for Sustainable Futures (ISF) of the University of Technology Sydney, in partnership with Dr Helen Lewis to develop the online packaging sustainability self-assessment tool. An early version of the tool was piloted with members to obtain feedback on the framework criteria and the metrics to assess progress towards packaging sustainability. The outcomes of the pilot are documented in the report below.
The packaging sustainability framework has been designed to be consistent with the revised Covenant, APCO’s strategic plan and relevant international frameworks. The framework will be reviewed annually to ensure that it remains up to date and continues to meet user needs.
