The Online Sustainability Platform revolutionises education and collaboration in the Australian Market.
Zaidee Jackson, the National Business Development Manager of Sustainable Packaging and the driving force behind this initiative, expressed her pride as a distributor in providing a valuable resource that centres around sustainability and materiality in Australia.
With the recent release of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) review on the 2025 Targets, the need for proactive action and urgent decision-making by brands in this arena has become evident. The focus is now on driving education and supporting the packaging industry to ensure a sustainable future.
Emphasising collective efforts and a shared economy of information, the platform aims to provide an information resource dedicated to sustainability so that targets and roadmaps can be achieved.
The newly launched educational resource offers an extensive range of podcasts, articles, research, and insights from industry experts, all aimed at reducing environmental impacts. It includes a comprehensive product index along with ecoaudit questions and answers to assist and collaborate with industries on their sustainable journeys.
Ball & Doggett are proud to welcome the industry on this journey with intentionally creating transformational partners.
