Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation Action Plan

Huon is critically aware of the environmental impact of packaging, and we undertake Sustainable Packaging Guideline (SPG) assessments annually for all product packaging.

Huon Aquaculture has been an Australia Packaging Covenant signatory since 2011. The APC is focused on three goals:

  • Better design of packaging, both in the process of creating it and the materials used.
  • Management of the product after its useful life, i.e. recycling and recovery of materials used in packaging and the packaging manufacturing process.
  • Product stewardship – better management of the product during its lifecycle; from those in industry, through to those using the end product.

Major retailers are also committed to reducing waste; there is now a significant drive for all packaging to be 100 per cent recyclable by 2025.
