AIP Webinar: Global Packaging Design for Recycling Guide Launch

Add to Calendar

All Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) members and industry colleagues are invited to attend this free-of-charge one hour webinar which will provide an overview of the guide, followed by a panel discussion with the WPO, ECR and the University of Applied Science Vienna.

ECR Community and the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) are delighted to announce the launch of a global Packaging Design for Recyclability Guide to promote better design of packaging for recycling and support the transition to a more circular economy.

The Packaging Design for Recycling Guide is a starting point to understand Best Practice examples using state-of-the-art technology that can then be applied and tailored to suit the recovery and recyclability capabilities and infrastructure on a regional and local level. The guide can be applied to products from the Food, Near-Food and Non-Food segments and is applicable to all primary, secondary and tertiary packaging; provided that product-specific regulations of the packaging system are observed.

The easy-to-read guide with a traffic light system is designed to provide FMCG and Consumer Product Group (CPG) businesses with a global recommendation for circular packaging design.
