APCO opens applications for 2023 awards

The Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) has officially opened applications for the 2023 APCO Annual Awards.

As Australia’s annual celebration of sustainable packaging leadership, APCO’s Annual Awards recognise businesses and sustainability professionals that are driving progress towards a circular economy for packaging in Australia.

This year, the awards return with a host of new features, including a new independent judging panel coordinated by the Banksia Foundation, featuring esteemed professionals from across the packaging industry value chain.

For the first time, many award entries will also be open to non-members in an aim to foster a culture of inclusivity and to amplify the collective impact of sustainability efforts.

“The APCO Annual Awards celebrate the visionaries, the risk-takers, and the game-changers who are shaping the future of packaging here in Australia,” says APCO CEO Chris Foley.

“This year, we are excited to be taking that celebration to new heights by inviting applications from any business here in Australia.

“So, whether your team is pioneering reusable packaging or changing the packaging conversation through cutting-edge consumer education don’t miss out on this chance to have your achievements recognised”.

The APCO Annual Awards will be held on November 2 at the Maritime Museum Sydney. This year’s awards ceremony will also be preceded by a half-day conference exploring the theme ‘The future of packaging’.
