That’s why it’s our mission to produce the most sustainable, environmentally friendly packaging on the market. We champion compostable packaging and we’re focussed on reducing tree-based paper and fossil fuel-based plastic used in foodservice ware by offering an eco-friendly alternative.
As a responsible business, we have an obligation to preserve and protect the environment and to give back and support the communities in which we operate. We donate our time, energy and 7.5% of all profits to environmental restoration initiatives with Rainforest Rescue (Australia) and Forest & Bird (New Zealand), and community programs in conjunction with our charity partners listed below. These initiatives and programs contribute to the welfare of less fortunate individuals and help accelerate the transition to a circular economy by promoting sustainability, economic development and self-sufficiency. We also produce a BioCup Art Series to promote artists whose work raises awareness and reconnects consumers with the environment.
Thanks to our customers, we have planted 10,500 trees and purchased over 4 hectares of threatened Daintree rainforest in North Queensland since 2011. In New Zealand, we support the 'Kauri Dieback Program' which helps protect the ancient kauri trees in the Waipoua Forest, so vital to the country's habitat and wildlife.
All BioPak products are certified carbon neutral. The carbon emissions associated with the production, transport and disposal of our products are measured by the Carbon Reduction Institute and are offset through the purchase of carbon credits.
We strive to minimise any adverse impacts our business has on the environment through purchasing carbon credits to compensate for the unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions created through the production, transportation and disposal of our products.
We were the first packaging company to become Carbon Neutral in Australia and New Zealand in 2010. Each carbon credit or offset relates to 1 tonne of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas emissions that have been avoided by funding renewable energy or tree planting project.
