Our Network

Empauer is active in the promotion and communication of sustainability through our network of like-minded organisations.

Australian Institute of Packaging

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is the peak professional body for packaging education and training in Australasia; helping to shape the careers of generations of packaging professionals – from packaging technologists to international packaging business leaders along with a host of people in associated disciplines – sales and marketing, purchasing, production and environment.

Empauer is a supporter of the AIP through our involvement in the Australasian Packaging Innovation & Design Awards (PIDA) which recognises companies and individuals who are making a significant difference in their field across Australia and New Zealand.

The AIP was a presenting partner of the State of Sustainability Survey with Empauer in 2018.

In 2024, Empauer with the AIP launched the LCA Decision Package, a ground breaking initiative to help industry gain clear insights to their packaging.


End Food Waste Australia

End Food Waste Australia is actively engaged in pioneering research initiatives through the End Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre (CRC).  Additionally, it champions robust industry-led actions and collaborative efforts via the Australian Food Pact and Sector Action Plans.  With a clear goal to halve food waste by 2030, the organisation envisions an Australia free from food waste.

As a founding member of the End Food Waste CRC, Empauer partnered with RMIT University to innovate and co-develop DIRECT, a software tool that accurately assesses the true cost of waste, highlighting pathways to minimise food waste across the supply chain.

Empauer’s commitment extends to the Australian Food Pact, where it forms a critical part of a vast network of organisations spanning the entire food supply chain.  This alliance is not just focused on slashing Australia’s food waste by half within this decade but also aims to tackle food insecurity, drive innovation, and bolster the productivity and resilience of the Australian food system.

As a member of End Food Waste Australia and the Australian Food Pact, Empauer stands with leading figures in the food industry, united in their dedication to eradicating food waste.
