Information for New Signatories

Congratulations on joining more than 980 other signatories in an effort to jointly manage the environmental impacts of packaging.

In acknowledgment of your participation and to facilitate a greater awareness and understanding of the APC, we encourage you to promote your involvement through use of the APC logos on your website, brochures, press releases and newsletters.

Your APC action plan, which outlines the actions and activities you will undertake to improve the environmental performance of consumer packaging is due within three months of joining. 

To prepare your action plan, please refer to the Action Plan Template, available in the Resources section of this website. You should also refer to the Covenant [Schedule 1].  

In addition, to see what others are doing you may like to look at the action plans of other signatories for inspiration. 

Part of your ongoing commitment will be to publish your new action plan and subsequent annual reports on your website (refer to Section 4 of the Covenant).  We will also make your report publicly available via this website.

A range of other useful tools can also be found in the Resources section of this site.

For support developing your action plans, completing annual reports, developing your Buy Recycled policy, implementing the Sustainable Packaging Guidelines or product assessment issues contact Signatory Services: 02 8381 3706 or
