Last night, BioPak was awarded the prestigious Woolworths Sustainability Supplier of the Year in recognition of our ongoing efforts to reduce packaging and we couldn't be more excited.

“It is an honour to be acknowledged by Woolworths as a business showcasing excellence in sustainability. Their commitment to engage us to innovate sustainable solutions was the catalyst to making real change! Woolworths leads an industry waiting for change to “just happen”, they took on the responsibility to force a change in habits that have a real environmental impact`` said Gary Smith, CEO BioPak.

Many forward-thinking brands have gotten the message — they’re taking the future of our planet into their own hands through partnerships with environmental nonprofits and sustainable business practices. There is a need to step up, shine a spotlight on the issue and inject a sense of urgency that up till now seems to have been lacking.

This is why BioPak is officially declaring a climate emergency and pledging to take immediate action on climate change.

Press release seen on City of Sydney News on May 28, 2019 and commentary added by Richard Fine, founder and sustainability director of BioPak.

City of Sydney has launched a new business pledge that will dramatically reduce single-use plastics.

Sustainable business growth is among the top objectives for leaders, and it’s hard to do it alone.

Building a talented team is one of the crucial elements to maintaining a competitive advantage and successfully scaling a business, but top talent know how in-demand they are, and if employers don’t position themselves well they might lose star employees.

BioPak founder Richard Fine has urged the Australian government to make a global commitment to the circular economy, saying it is "incredibly disappointing" that it is not on the top of parliament's agenda.

Fine spoke to PKN editor & publisher Lindy Hughson about the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment [Ellen McArthur Foundation], and what needs to be done to increase plastic recycling.
