PENRITE SIGNS ON WITH AUSTRALIAN PACKAGING COVENANT
Australian owned and operated for 95 years, Penrite is working towards a sustainable future
Penrite says it has committed to a sustainable future by becoming a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant (APCO) and their Sustainable Packaging Guidelines.
Under the APCO guidelines, Penrite has committed to producing sustainable consumer packaging with efficient use of resources that reduces environmental impacts.
In conjunction with the Australian Packaging Covenant, Penrite has developed a sustainability strategy in relation to its packaging by using recycled plastic in a wide range of its 2.5, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10 and 20 Litre products.
All new products are assessed against the APCO Guidelines for their impact on primary, secondary and tertiary packaging requirements.
This environmental commitment is further enhanced by using 100 percent Recyclable Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified cardboard cartons for Penrite’s 1L, 2.5L, 4L, 5L and 6L product ranges.
The FSC Certification assures that Penrite’s cardboard cartons are made with, or contains, forest-based materials from FSC-certified forests, recycled materials, and/or FSC controlled wood.
Penrite says its award-winning ENVIRO BOX, a bag-in-a-box concept for packaging and dispensing lubricant, is another example of its commitment to environmentally conscious packaging.
The introduction of the ENVIRO BOX has reportedly meant a reduction in the number of 20 litre HDPE packs that Penrite is putting into the landfill waste.
Penrite says it strives to minimise any environmental impact by reducing emissions and developing safe and sustainable, production, packaging, storage and distribution methodologies.
