Stan Moore, former CEO, NPCIA

Stan Moore has stepped aside as CEO of the Australian Packaging Covenant as part of an organisational restructure ahead of an updated Covenant due to begin next year.

Given the proposed future direction and its timing and the need to transform the governance arrangements of the National Packaging Covenant Industry Association (NPCIA), the NPCIA Committee and CEO, Mr. Stan Moore, have agreed that it is timely to refresh the leadership of the NPCIA to implement these changes,” said a press release announcing the move.

The Australian Packaging Covenant (APC) is a sustainable packaging initiative that aims to change the culture of business to design more sustainable packaging, increase recycling rates and reduce packaging litter.

Moore, who previously had been critical of the federal government’s commitment to the APC, left the organisation on Monday, 17th August after four years in the job.

Last year Moore urged government ministers to support the APC model. “It’s absolutely critical to remove uncertainty to allow industry to get on with initiatives and meet critical timeframes to ensure progress does not stall,” he said.

The Australian Packaging Covenant is in a transitional year as the NPCIA and governments work to finalise the arrangements for a refreshed Covenant to commence in July 2016. Governments and industry are currently developing the future strategic direction that will be in place for the next five years,” said the NPCIA press release.

During his time as CEO, Stan has overseen extensive growth in industry participation in this important product stewardship scheme, which has contributed to improved litter reduction and recycling outcomes for packaging waste. The NPCIA thanks Stan for his contribution and dedication to the Packaging Covenant.”
