The Environment

We take responsibility for how our business may impact on the environment, from the way we manufacture, how consumers use our products to the logistics needed to bring them to market.

As a global company, we have set global targets to improve our environmental impact in four key areas: Carbon / Water / Waste & Packaging / Palm Oil.

We are now two years into our three year environmental improvement plan, with our operating units showing good results and continued engagement in achieving our stretch targets for reducing our impacts on the global environments where we operate.

We recognise our key role in responding conscientiously and doing the right thing in business to help minimise any adverse impacts to the environment. We continue to take positive steps to tackle issues and make a positive contribution to meeting global environmental challenges, including identifying and rigorously pursuing opportunities to reduce the Group’s reliance on unsustainable materials.

The Australian Packaging Covenant

PZ Cussons Australia is Signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant, an industry-led initiative to reduce the negative impact of packaging on the environment. This is achieved through three key categories:

  • Sustainable packaging design
  • Recovery and recycling of used packaging materials resulting in reduced waste and litter
  • The engagement of all participants in the supply chain in the sustainable use of packaging materials.
