PREP Design has a number of partners who we work closely with to enhance their member’s experience through the provision of the PREP Design solutions.
The Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) is a co-regulatory, not-for-profit organisation that partners with almost 1,000 government and industry organisations to reduce the harmful impact of packaging on the Australian environment.
