The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has now opened bookings for its Tools to help you meet the 2025 National Packaging Targets: PREP & ARL virtual training course.
The virtual event will run on the 17 November and will be facilitated by Ralph Moyle FAIP CPP, Education Coordinator, Australian Institute of Packaging + Guest Experts in PREP, Sustainable Design and ARL.
All participants will attain 12.5 Certified Professional Development points towards the Certified Packaging Professional (CPP) Designation.
The course will include:
- Is your business doing enough to ensure that 100 per cent of your packaging is reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025?
- Have you audited your current packaging for recyclability?
- Have you started using the Packaging Recyclability Evaluation Portal (PREP) during your design process?
- Are you looking for a way to validate your on-pack recyclability labelling?
- If a consumer picked up your product, would they easily understand which bin to put it in?
- Are you shifting your packaging design to incorporate the Australasian Recycling Label (ARL)?
This training course will help attendees to better understand what tools are available, how to use them, why they are needed and how they link to the 2025 National Packaging Targets.
Attendees will also learn about the APCO Recycling Label Program and consumer recycling behaviours. Attendees will then deep-dive in to the purpose of PREP, gain an understanding of the governance and data collection process behind PREP, review samples and material templates and work through sample assessment templates. Attendees will be able to undertake a hands-on interactive session using PREP to complete an evaluation, review a report and understand the reasons behind the assessment.
This training course will enable participants to gain a better understanding of how using PREP and applying the ARL can help your business to meet the 2025 National Packaging Targets.
The course will also enable participants to have a better and more realistic view of what packaging is truly recyclable and being recycled in Australia. Understanding these tools will enable agencies and marketers to provide verifiable and consistent recyclability information to their consumers.
