Amcor Triples Recycled Content Target

Amcor has released its 2022 Sustainability Report, detailing continued progress against key sustainability metrics and announcing an enhanced target to achieve 30 percent recycled content across its portfolio by the end of the decade.

The new recycled content target is three times its previous target of 10 percent. In fiscal year 2022, the company committed to net zero emissions by 2050, more than doubled post-consumer recycled material purchased since 2019 and achieved a Gold rating from EcoVadis for its sustainability practices, placing Amcor among the top 5 percent of all companies assessed.

The report highlights how Amcor has advanced on its pledge to make all products recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025, with 74 percent of total production by weight already designed to be recycled and the number of products with more sustainable properties continually growing.

In 2022, the company launched a product rebrand that includes its new EcoGuard brand that makes it easier for customers to choose from a number of more sustainable solutions, according to the company, including products that reduce the carbon footprint of packaging, are designed to be recycled and use recycled content or biomaterials.

Progress on Amcor’s EnviroAction program also continues, with a 33 percent reduction in waste sent to disposal over the past three years and 121 Amcor sites achieving zero waste-to-disposal last year. All sites have water management plans in place, and every site that uses plastic pellets, granules or flakes has implemented Operation Clean Sweep methodology for preventing plastic pellet loss.
