Welcome to the Glass Packaging Forum
“creating opportunities for innovative uses of waste container glass”
The Forum was formally established in April 2006, in response to the increase in glass recovery which exceeded the demand from its only existing market at the time i.e. reuse in glass making, and to support and deliver on the objectives, commitments and targets of the voluntary New Zealand Packaging Accord applicable at the time.
The Glass Packaging Forum – (GPF) is a non-profit organization, which aims to ensure the ongoing performance of glass as environmentally acceptable packaging.
With the life of the Packaging Accord completed, the Forum's programme of work has now received accreditation as a voluntary product stewardship scheme under the Waste Minimisation Act (2008). It is the first packaging scheme to receive accreditation and was the 2nd product stewardship scheme for any product or industry to be accredited under the Act.
