Australia’s Ambitious National Packaging Targets

Australia’s ambitious 2025 national packaging targets have the Australian Government and leaders in sectors including food and packaging working together to create a more environmentally friendly country.


On the 25th of September, the minister for the environment, Melissa Price, joined leaders from packaging, retail, logistics, manufacturing, recycling and waste management businesses in a pledge to better manage packaging waste.


Australia’s 2025 national packaging targets were announced at an event in Melbourne, convened by the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO).


The 2025 targets are for 100% of Australia’s packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.
