AIP and Empauer partner on LCA Decision Package for SMEs

AIP and Empauer have entered into an exclusive MOU, providing access to tailored Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) to help SMEs make informed and science-based decisions when selecting packaging materials.

“This innovative LCA Decision Package will enable businesses to make informed and sustainable decisions when it comes to the packaging design they utilise. It will provide AIP members, and the wider industry, with access to the latest tools and expertise, enabling them to reduce their environmental footprint and make responsible choices in line with global sustainability goals,” said AIP Executive Director Nerida Kelton.

Empauer CEO Victor Barichello said the company was delighted to partner with the AIP. “Empauer’s commitment to enabling sustainability to be part of an organisation’s decision-making process aligns seamlessly with AIP’s mission, and together, we aim to effect change that resonates throughout the industry.”

Kelton added, “With the federal government having announced there will be mandatory packaging design standards coming in the not-too-distant future, the launch of this program will enable all-sized businesses to make the right decisions to measure their packaging circularity through the use of the specifically designed LCA tool.”

The program will be officially unveiled on Wednesday, 6 March 2024 at 10.00 am AEDT, with AIP and Empauer jointly hosting a webinar to introduce the LCA Package for SMEs to AIP members and the broader industry.
