About the client
The Australian Packaging Covenant of Australia (APCO) is a co-regulatory, not for profit organisation partnering with governments and industries to reduce the environmental impact of packaging.
APCO aims to change the culture of business and educate consumers by promoting sustainable packaging and recycling initiatives to reduce the amount of waste ending up in landfill.  As a collective, we can all make a difference. 
Have you ever noticed the recycling information on a packet of biscuits, chips or lollies?  APCO designed this and it’s the project you will be involved in!

This is just one of the programs APCO successfully manage.
