The packaging you don’t see
In recent times, we’ve sharpened our focus on packaging reduction through our supply chain overseas initiative. This has included a move to optimise the size and use of cardboard boxes used in our supply chain.
The future of packaging
Target is a proud member of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) and we used APCO’s newly created Annual Reporting Tool during the period to review our packaging programs. We identified a number of improvement opportunities and developed an action plan - forming the foundation for our response to the 2025 target set in April 2018 by Australia’s Environment Ministers to make 100 per cent of packaging in Australia reusable, recyclable or compostable. As more details about the target are clarified, we will further refine our plans to ensure we reach the landmark goal set by the Environment Ministers.
