At this year’s event Australia Post won the APC award for Outstanding Achievement in Packaging Stewardship. Australia Post is an excellent example of sustainability through collaboration with suppliers, customers and not-for-profits. Australia Post’s unrivalled national network puts it in a unique position to act as an enabler for a range of Product Stewardship Programs.
“One of the great opportunities we see as a business is leveraging our network to make it easier for Australians to collect and return items that would otherwise go to landfill. For example, we have recently partnered with Nespresso to develop a prepaid satchel that allows their customers to collect and return used aluminium coffee capsules to be recycled simply by posting the satchel in any street posting box or any post office. As companies increasingly look for ways to reduce their environmental footprint Australian Post is perfectly positioned to help them do this via our unrivalled network.” Andrew Sellick, Head of Environmental Sustainability
