Applications open for the 2023 APCO Annual Awards

APCO last night announced the winners of their 2023 Annual Awards.

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

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 with an aim to foster a culture of inclusivity and amplify the collective impact of sustainability efforts. This inclusive approach encourages organisations from all corners of the industry to participate and contribute to a sustainable packaging future.

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

“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, 2023, 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. 

To apply for the awards, register at the Banksia application portal.
