FPA Australia owns the Envirochoice brand, and is a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant. The APC is a sustainable packaging initiative which aims to change the culture of business to design more sustainable packaging, increase recycling rates and reduce packaging litter. FPA is committed to achieving the ambitious action plan we have set ourselves which consists of ongoing targets and reportable outcomes. The Australian Packaging Covenant supplies a range of resources, including this one which will help you see through the green wash and buy sustainable and responsible packaging.
Sustainability represents a triple bottom line of environmental, social and economical requirements.
Here at Food Packaging Australia we are endeavouring to expand and develop a range of products through a variety of technologies.
We are here to help you through the education and understanding of what materials are sustainable and why.
There are a number of materials now available to produce packaging from materials that can be regrown. Many of our raw materials are by-products of other processes and therefore provide a win-win solution. There are also a number of oxo-biodegradable products, a new plastic additive technology that allows plastics to be consumed by micro-organisms and converted completely into biomass.
