Organisations sign the Covenant to signal their commitment to reduce the environmental impacts of consumer packaging by:
- designing packaging that is more resource efficient and more recyclable
- increasing the recovery and recycling of used packaging from households and away-from-home sources and
- taking action to reduce the incidence and impacts of litter.
Currently over 900 organisations (business and industry, government and non-government) are signatories to the Australian Packaging Covenant.
