These practical solution-focused schemes, funded by member levies, are where we work on behalf of our members to steward their packaging material.

Have a seat at the table with government

The Packaging Forum advocates to government on behalf of members for effective policy settings and regulation around packaging sustainability. We’re engaged in active dialogue with elected representatives from all parties and government officials. We consult with members to formulate high quality industry responses and submissions during public consultations.
