The Glass Packaging Forum (GPF) promotes the environmental benefits of glass packaging and manages the accredited Glass Packaging Forum Product Stewardship Scheme

Established in 2006, the Glass Packaging Forum is now part of The Packaging Forum which is dedicated to developing product stewardship across packaging materials and the packaging supply chain.  The GPF meets its objectives through the management of its independent Product Stewardship Scheme.

A primary function of GPF is to ensure that as much waste container glass as possible is diverted from landfill. This is done through the provision of infrastructure to improve glass recovery and facilitate glass recycling and through research of alternative uses for waste glass. These activities are supported by a comprehensive Consumer Awareness programme.

Progress has only been made possible through the unique levy system by which members’ contributions relate directly to the volume of glass each sells into the New Zealand market place.
