The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) will be at the Waste Expo 2022, running a session on the 27October at 10.00 am.
It will be joined by industry partners Australian Food and Grocery Council (AFGC) and National Retail Association (NRA) to discuss the new program designed to help businesses adopt the Australasian Recycling Label (ARL).
The session will be held on the Waste Expo floor, Theatre 1 and in addition the AIP will have an exhibition stand #A102 at the two-day trade exhibition which starts on 26 October.
At the session, attendees will hear from a consortium of industry associations about how they are working on a new campaign to empower small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to start using the ARL on their packaging which will in turn guide their customers how to recycle correctly and help push Australia towards achieving the 2025 National Packaging Targets.
The program is being delivered in a four-way partnership with the AIP, the NRA, the AFGC and the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO).
This project received grant funding from the Australian Government, which is committed to helping all SMEs put the ARL on their packaging and help customers recycle correctly.
Speakers at the panel include:
- Nerida Kelton, executive director, Australia Institute of Packaging (AIP) + vice-president of sustainability and save food, World Packaging Organisation (WPO)
- Barry Cosier, sustainability director, Australian Food and Grocery Council (AFGC)
- Bonnie Marshall, policy officer, National Retail Association (NRA)
