Pact Group Attends ALDI’s Building Sustainable Partnership Forum

26 June 2019

As a speaker and panelist at the event, Raphael Geminder, Chairman of Pact Group, one of ALDI’s long standing business partners said, “Pact Group started its sustainability journey almost two decades ago, and it’s now part of the groups DNA. But even though we have been doing this for a long time – we are in unchartered waters. It’s not business as usual, geopolitical and consumer shifts in sustainability have created an urgency towards action, to transform our system and move to a circular economy, creating the need to invest in scalable end of life solutions that will consume Australia’s recyclable resources.”

“Australia is an innovative advanced first world economy and to effect this shift, we will need to embrace closed loop industry solutions, embrace collaboration and continue to eliminate waste in our supply chain. Collecting material is not a solution, we need to embrace and grow returnable packaging, aggressively expand pooling solutions and find large sinks that consume high levels of recycled material. We launched our End of Waste 2025 commitment last year and are actively investing in solutions that help us achieve our goal and in turn help our partners achieve their own sustainability objectives.”

Pact Group’s 2025 End of Waste Sustainability targets include:
• By 2025 Pact Group will eliminate all non-recyclable packaging that it produces.
• By 2025 Pact Group will have solutions to reduce, reuse and recycle all single use secondary packaging in supermarkets.
• By 2025 Pact Group will offer 30 per cent recycled content across its packaging portfolio.
