Caspak 2025 NPT
The 2025 National Packing Targets have mandated that 100% of packaging in Australia be reusable, recyclable or compostable. The targets also cover that all packaging needs on average 50% of post-consumer recycled within the product and 20% PCR within flexible packaging. These targets were agreed upon by industry and governments alike and are a step towards Australia becoming a circular economy.
At Caspak, we take this initiative seriously and want to work with you to develop sustainable packaging solutions that suit your needs and budget, at the same time as saving our planet.
Bamboo is an eco-superstar and game-changer for the packaging sector
Bamboo is rapidly becoming a viable alternative to plastic and has become a hot commodity in the sustainable marketplace. Bamboo requires no pesticides or fertilizers, and uses a third less water to grow than cotton. Bamboo grows rapidly, reduces soil erosion and absorbs five times more carbon dioxide while producing 35% more oxygen than trees.
… and bamboo can be recycled in your paper bin.
Sustainable inside and out
Whether it’s the products that we offer our customers or how we run the business, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Caspak.
We vet our entire supply chain to reduce our environmental impact at every step. Our new premises have been built to the highest sustainability standards using recycled materials wherever possible and has a 135kw solar power station that puts more energy back into the grid than we use. We have begun transitioning our fleet of company vehicles to electric with the purchase of a Tesla and three electric-powered forklifts, and have installed two charging stations for our staff and the public to use.
Our R&D strategy brings the most environmentally friendly solutions to you
At Caspak, our R&D department leaves no stone unturned in our quest to reduce waste by bringing to market a suite of sustainable packaging solutions of the highest quality.
We have developed our sustainable products to have the most efficient end of life process whilst maintaining shelf life. For our Bamboo Tray, for instance, we ran repulping and yield tests with Orora to make sure the tray didn’t require more energy output than the system could provide to turn to pulp.
These ongoing processes and tests enable us to ensure our products are aligned with our commitment to sustainability without being a burden to the system.
Be part of a sustainable packaging future
We are committed to working towards a collaborative packaging and recycling industry which ultimately provides better solutions for producers and consumers in Australia.
In July 2019, we joined the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) – a co-regulatory, not-for-profit organisation that partners with government and industry to reduce the harmful impact of packaging on the Australian environment.
In 2019, we joined the Aspire program – an initiative of Swinburne University, Data 61 and CSIRO that actively suggests collaborations where surplus product or materials would be suitable for use in the creation of new products.
