BIOPAK JOINS UN GLOBAL COMPACT
BioPak has joined leading Australian packaging companies in a commitment to source and manufacture its products sustainably and ethically.
The eco-friendly packaging company recently signed up to the United Nations Global Compact – an initiative for businesses to commit to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of environment, human rights, labour, and anti-corruption.
Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon welcomed BioPak’s decision. “We need business to give practical meaning and reach to the values and principles that connect cultures and people everywhere,” he said.
More than 8000 participants, including Alto Packaging, Pact Group and VIP Packaging, have signed up to the UN Global Compact since its launch in 2000.
