Australian Packaging Convenant
TTS Australia is a signatory of the Australian Packaging Covenant (APC) and our action
plan has been submitted. Under the Covenant, signatories agree to work together and
promote the principle of product stewardship for packaging.
The APC is a commitment by industry and governments to the sustainable design, use and
recovery of packaging. It is Australia's way of managing the impacts of packaging and
offers a highly efficient and collaborative solution.
The objective of the Packaging Covenant is to minimise the overall environmental
impacts of packaging by pursuing the following specific performance goals:
Packaging optimised to achieve resource efficiency and reduced environmental impact
without compromising product quality and safety.
The efficient collection and recycling of packaging
A demonstrated commitment to product stewardship by organisations in the supply chain and
The guidelines articulate the definition and principles of 'sustainable
packaging' so that all parties in the packaging supply chain work toward the same
vision. Sustainable packaging is fit-for-purpose, resource-efficient, made from low-
impact materials, and reusable or recyclable at the end of its useful life.
