The Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation set key national targets for packaging as part of an overarching goal to have all packaging be reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.
One of these targets is the use of recycled content in packaging materials, and while it previously sat at 30%, it has now been revised up to 50%.
This change occurred after the previous year of bench-mark testing saw that already packaging products were hitting the goal of containing around 30% recycled content, achieved through high levels of glass and paper recycling.
And while the revised content is about especially targeting the recycling of plastic, new guidelines released by APCO present paper packing with its own target of 60% recycled content by 2025.
