Brother Australia wins sustainable packaging award By Andrew Starc on Nov 16, 2023 2:01PM In The Spotlight Brother International Australia (BIA) has been honoured with the Sustainable Packaging Guidelines Implementation Award from the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO). The award recognises BIA for creating sustainable packaging with a clear recovery solution in mind and incorporating recycled content into its packaging. BIA’s efforts to eliminate polystyrene (EPS) and polyethylene (EPE) packaging from its printing products, with a commitment to remove remaining products with EPE/EPS packaging by March 2024, was a cornerstone of their win. "This is a testament to a truly wonderful achievement for the whole Brother group, including (but not limited to) our designers, engineers, procurement and production teams, and to all staff directly or indirectly engaged locally and internationally,” BIA's director Andy O'Donnell said. "It's been a remarkable journey, and we can take great pride in our achievements to date." BIA has also committed to maintaining high-quality standards and utilising sustainable alternative materials and packaging methods that protect the quality of its products. "The Awards demonstrate the industry's progress to meeting the 2025 National Packaging Targets and more broadly how we are shaping the future of packaging here in Australia," said APCO chief executive Chris Foley. "It is empowering to see organisations across the industry laying the foundations for a stronger packaging system beyond 2025, and making tangible progress toward implementing a circular economy for packaging."
