Signet is part of Australian Packaging Covenant Signatory (APCO)
As a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant (APCO), Signet is working towards the 2025 National Packaging Targets. This focuses on sustainable material sourcing and manufacturing, right through to the end-of-life product disposal. We are committed to providing our customers with products and solutions that have minimal impact on the environment.
We currently offer our customers over 340 environmentally friendly packaging solutions. Each product in our eco-friendly range is either compostable, recyclable, biodegradable, reusable and/or made from recycled or renewable resources. Find the icons on our eco-friendly products in the online store or our catalogue.
Partnering with our waste partner, Veolia, Signet have been workng to implement better recycling chanels throughout our sites nationwide. This involves implementing Multisort bins for landfill, co-mingle, organic waste, and paper in our offices, and TerraCycle bins for PPE in our manufacturing facilities.
Through this project we have seen a 12% reduction in waste year on year at our Brisbane site alone, which has seen us recognized as an ecoBiz 1 star partner in waste.
Another step in our sustainability journey has been working on a project to install solar panels across our sites. So far, the solar panels installed at our Brisbane sites are contributing to 22% of our energy requirements.
