Amcor’s 2025 Pledge

Amcor is the first global packaging company pledging to develop all its packaging to be recyclable or reusable by 2025, directly addressing a major environmental issue with its capability, scale and reach. At the same time, we have committed to significantly increasing our use of recycled materials and driving consistently more recycling of packaging around the world. Find out more

 

More sustainable products

We regularly produce packaging that is more functional, appealing, and cost effective for our customers and their consumers, and more sustainable for the environment. Using the right amount of the most appropriate materials, we are focused on increasing the volume of packaging that is recycled and reused. In 2017, Amcor was recognised three times over by the DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation.
 

 

EnviroAction

We measure and aim to reduce the impact of our operations, worldwide. We set ambitious targets under Amcor’s internal EnviroAction programme to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce waste-to-landfill, and have active waste management plans in place in all of our sites.

 

World Leading Performance

We are proud that global and regional indices recognise us for our sustainability performance. Amcor is included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, the CDP Climate Disclosure Leadership Index for Australia, the MSCI Global Sustainability Index series, the Ethibel Excellence Investment Register and the FTSE4Good Index.

Amcor’s Sustainability Partners


We focus our resources on strategic, global partnerships with organisations that, like Amcor, concentrate on reducing the effects of packaging products on the environment and where packaging can play an important role in delivering humanitarian aid.

Supporting Earthwatch Institute

Since 2001 Amcor has supported Earthwatch Institute by sending a group of our employees on an annual science-based expedition. Our work with Earthwatch gives our people the opportunity to contribute to understanding and addressing environmental challenges facing our planet. Since 2015, Amcor's Earthwatch expeditions have focused on the issue of marine debris.
 

Industry-wide collaboration

Amcor is committed to increasing the recycling rates of our products; we participate in regional initiatives including CEFLEX in Europe and Materials Recovery for the Future (MRFF) and The Recycling Partnership in the United States. With CEFLEX and MRFF, we are working toward improved recycling rates for flexible packaging and through the The Recycling Partnership we are contributing to improving Americans' access to curbside recycling infrastructure.

Amcor leadership inspires action in Asia

Being the world’s leading global packaging company includes Amcor making the environment better through our sustainability leadership. In November 2017, David Clark, Vice President, Sustainability, shared an Amcor-commissioned report on recycling initiatives in Asia.
The report, Toward Circularity of Post-consumer Flexible Packaging in Asia, proposes how Amcor and others can further increase efforts to recover and recycle flexible plastic packaging.
Amcor is inviting responses to the report by email to reports@goneadventurin.com.
