Amcor recognised for sustainability efforts

Packaging company Amcor is celebrating being recognised for its sustainability practices by two different bodies.

The Australian Financial Review has listed Amcor as a 2022 Australian Financial Review Sustainability Leader in the Manufacturing and Consumer Goods category, in association with BCG. This list offers recognition to companies that are working to solve sustainability problems. The Australian wing of Amcor was given a nod due to its moves in the last year to convert its products to recycle-ready formats, and for its contributions to a food wrapper composed of recycled content for Nestlé’s KitKat brand.

Additionally, Amcor received recognition at the 2022 Australasian Packaging Innovation and Design Awards (PIDA), taking home the silver award in the Sustainable — Industrial Design of the Year category at PIDA for its PrimeSeal Eco-Tite Recycle-Ready Shrink Bag. Its PrimeSeal Flow-Tite packaging was also named a finalist in two categories: Best Food Packaging Design of the Year and Accessible and Inclusive Packaging Design of the Year.

Simon Roy, Vice President and General Manager for Amcor Australia and New Zealand, said: “It’s terrific to see Amcor’s innovative and more sustainable packaging solutions be recognised by the industry and community in the local market.

“We are a global company with a proud local history that enables us to leverage research and development at scale to produce best-in-class innovations that can be applied either globally or locally, to help meet our customers’ needs. Our commitment to innovation is second to none and we’re proud to be driving a more sustainable and circular packaging value chain for our local customers, end consumers and the environment.”
