Packaging Covenant

The Australian Packaging Covenant is an agreement between companies in the packaging supply chain and government to reduce the environmental impact of consumer packaging. The goals will be achieved by designing packaging that is more resource efficient and more recyclable, thus increasing the recycling of used packaging, and reducing litter. The Covenant is based on the premise that industry self-regulation is preferable to government imposing its own regulations on the industry, which may be much harsher.
