thinking and acting for the long term today

Sustainability sits at the centre of Visy’s operating model. It drives our advocacy of key actions that determine the long-term prosperity of our communities.

We believe sustainability is central to our future as a business, so it plays a part in every decision we make. We also believe sustainability works for our business on a practical level. It increases market opportunities, cuts unnecessary cost, increases profit and encourages a culture of innovation among our employees.

 
Glass is one of the world’s most sustainable packaging options, made from natural ingredients and recyclable again and again.

As Australia and New Zealand’s largest integrated business linking recycling and manufacturing at scale, we are an integral partner in helping our customers work towards their own sustainability targets and make a significant contribution to sustainability for the wider community. This creates shared value and underpins long-term business relationships.

We have committed to increasing the recycled glass content in the manufacture of every new container to 70% on average over time. Every increase in recycled glass used in production, results in reduced carbon emissions and reduced energy use.

*Cullet includes both external glass and internal glass (e.g. rejects, losses, obsolete or defective stock from our manufacturing processes), and the average % is based on weight of cullet into furnace as a % of  total furnace melt tonnes
