The Glass Packaging Forum (GPF) is a non-profit organization which promotes the environmental benefits of glass packaging.
Established in 2006, the Glass Packaging Forum meets its objectives through the implementation of its Product Stewardship Scheme, thus far the only Government accredited example in the packaging sector.
A primary function of the Forum 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.
