Australasian Recycling Label Receives Top Marks In International Report

A big tick of approval for the Australasian Recycling Label (ARL), which has been positively evaluated in a global assessment of recycling and sustainability labelling on plastic packaging.

The recent report by the UN Environment Programme and Consumers International delivered a global assessment of current standards, labels and claims on plastic packaging (specifically FMCG and Food and Beverage products). The report assessed various labels on how they communicate the materials used in a piece of packaging, as well as its recyclability and disposal information.

Thirty labels used globally were assessed against the fundamental principles of UNEP’s Guidelines for Providing Product Sustainability Information, which are reliability, relevance, transparency and accessibility. Ten of those labels (in addition to the universal recycling symbol) were identified as labels providing recycling guidance, including the ARL.
