Amcor Sustainability Report reveals higher target for recycled content


Amcor releases 2022 Sustainability Report which details continued progress against key sustainability metrics and announces an enhanced target to achieve 30% recycled content across its portfolio by the end of the decade.

The new recycled content target, which is three times its previous target of 10%, comes as Amcor reflects on a “landmark year” for its efforts on sustainability.

In the fiscal year 2022, the company says it committed to net zero emissions by 2050, more than doubled post-consumer recycled material purchased since 2019 and achieved a Gold rating from EcoVadis for its industry-leading sustainability practices, placing Amcor among the top 5% of all companies assessed.

We now have an exciting line-up of innovative packaging products.

The report highlights how Amcor has advanced on its pledge to make all products recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025, with 74% of total production by weight already designed to be recycled and the number of innovative solutions with more sustainable properties continually growing.

In 2022, the company launched a product rebrand that includes its new EcoGuardTM brand which it says makes it easier for customers to choose from several more sustainable solutions, including products that reduce the carbon footprint of packaging, are recycle-ready and use recycled content or biomaterials.

Ron Delia, CEO at Amcor, commented: “We’re continuing to show ambition and leadership to deliver better sustainability results for our people, our customers, our investors and the environment. We’re working with every part of the value chain to make this happen.

“I am particularly proud of our colleagues around the world who are dedicated to delivering on our sustainability ambitions. We now have an exciting line-up of innovative packaging products and we keep raising the bar to deliver the very best solutions for our customers’ specific needs.”
