ASSA ABLOY Australia first became a signatory to the National Packaging Covenant in 2003. Since then, significant improvements have been made to onsite recycling as well as designing packaging which is recyclable and resource efficient.

ASSA ABLOY Australia now commits to the new Australian Packaging Covenant and its objectives.  The Sustainable Packaging Guidelines will be incorporated into the Product/Packaging Development process and a program for reviewing current packaging against these Guidelines will be established.  Product Stewardship will continue to be a focus however more formal processes for working with our suppliers and customers is our goal.  All packaging reviews and evidence of working together with the supply chain will be documented and stored as objective evidence for external audits.

ASSA ABLOY Australia will consistently aim to improve onsite recycling and will purchase products/parts with a recycled content providing the performance, cost and benefits of these products/parts can be justified.  Improvements have been made to water and power efficiency onsite following financial investments in these areas.

These activities display the commitment of ASSA ABLOY Australia to the Australian Packaging Covenant as well as a more sustainable future.
