Our green approach - doing the best thing for the environment
Neild & Co is already making a strong stand for the environment by supplying reusable, recyclable packaging options to its customers.
Now a member of the visionary organisation, the Australian Packaging Covenant, Neild & Co is taking its place among some of Australia’s largest brands to make a real difference to the environment
Our Green Target
Of the estimated 3.4 millions tonnes of packaging that ends up in Australia’s landfill each year, just under half is currently recycled. Yet the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation has set a target of NO packaging being sent to landfill by 2025. The number of signatories to this target stands at about 1000 and is growing.

Progressive Packaging Options
The problem of waste is much bigger than any one company or group can solve. APCO runs on a co-regulatory basis, which “recognises that all sectors and governments have a role to play, working together to find the best possible solutions for packaging efficiency and sustainability in Australia.”
In the same way, Neild & Co’s commitment to better environmental outcomes resonates with our customers and with their customers as awareness of the problem grows.
New Recyclable Range
Over time, Neild & Co will source more and more recyclable and reusable offerings, to keep meeting consumer demand which is growing rapidly.
