Global community program helps foster sustainable communities
The Amcor Community Program bolsters our already active participation in the communities in which we operate.
As part of the Amcor Community Program we look for strategic partnerships with leading international organisations who share our passion for responsible packaging and helping people in need.
It also makes community grants available to Amcor’s global workforce so that all co-workers, from across more than 40 countries, have access to funding to take action and make a positive impact in their local communities.
Areas of focus
The Amcor Community Program will support initiatives that support the following causes:
- Protecting food: helping people access safe and nutritious food and reduce food waste, as the world’s population grows and global food shortages increase;
- Education: increasing awareness of the contribution responsible packaging makes to creating a more sustainable future;
- Protecting the environment: supporting ways to reduce environmental impacts at work and in our communities to contribute to a healthy planet; and
- Delivery of essential products and services: providing access to basic necessities, such as food, medicines and water to communities in need, particularly in times of crisis.
The Community Program aims to deliver healthier and more sustainable places for people to live and work – today and tomorrow.
The outcomes of the Community Program are reported each year in our annual Sustainability Report , commencing in 2014.
