APCO appoints Board of Directors for 2021

The Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) has appointed its board of directors for 2021, comprising industry leaders spanning the waste and recycling, packaging, food and beverage, and sustainability sectors.

Appointed at the Annual General Meeting on 18 November, which took place virtually, two new directors joined the APCO Board for 2021 – Richard Smith of Amcor and Kylie Freeland of McDonald’s Australia.

Richard Smith is currently director of Safety, Quality & Sustainability at Amcor, and will take up the position of industry association director for a term of three years, replacing board member Keith Chessell.

Also joining the board in the role of brand owner director is Kylie Freeland, director of Supply Chain and Sustainability, McDonald’s Australia, for a period of three years.

“We are delighted to welcome such a wealth and diversity of industry experience to the APCO Board. As we work towards the 2025 National Packaging Targets, our independent board structure is so important as it provides APCO with a systemic view of the complete packaging chain and the challenges faced by stakeholders at each step of the process,” said Sam Andersen, APCO Board chair.
