Bunnings is part of the Australian Packaging Covenant (APC) and is committed to reducing the environmental impact of consumer packaging. Bunnings expects suppliers to act in accordance with APC standards, to ensure product packaging design is optimised to minimise both environmental impact and the use of non-recyclable materials.
Additionally, all products and shipping/packaging cartons exceeding 10 kilograms are to have weight icons applied as per the weight icon program specifications. These weight icons assist Bunnings customers, team members, suppliers and contractors to identify the weight range of a product by sight prior to lifting.
We are focused on driving efficiencies across our supply chain with improved supplier collaboration and proven standards.
