ITW Proline Environmental Packaging Statement

ITW Proline is a signatory of the Australian Packaging Covenant, a voluntary initiative between industry and government to improve the lifecycle management of consumer packaging including recovery, utilisation and disposal.

Our aim is to reduce waste and maximise recycling of materials. In addition, educate our trading partners and promote recycling to end-users.  We are committed to improving the environmental outcomes of our business.

Through policy, review, action and education we are aiming to achieve the goals of the Sustainable Packaging Guidelines (under the Australian Packaging Covenant);

  1. Optimise packaging to use resources efficiently and reduce environmental impact without compromising product quality and safety.
  2. Achieve efficient collection and recycling of packaging.
  3. Encourage suppliers and other companies in the packaging supply chain to contribute to an improvement in environmental outcomes.

Some specific policies and actions undertaken by our business include:

  • Implementation of Sustainable Packaging Guidelines for the design of new products.
  • Assessment of current products with action to be taken to reduce packaging content and use of recyclable materials.  
  • Introduction of a 'Buy Recycled' policy for procurement of packaging materials.
  • Education of staff and suppliers through workshop activities. 
  • Use of on-site recovery systems for reuse and recycling used packaging.
  • Increased use of recycled materials through-out the business.
  • Set standards for environmental responsibility of our suppliers and monitoring of compliance.
