Detmold Group, a South Australia-based food and retail brands company, has unveiled its sustainability objectives as part of its commitment to sustainable packaging. 

The new objectives, launched on World Environment Day, focus on preserving natural resources, keeping waste out of nature, and reducing emissions and are part of Detmold’s efforts to achieve its six positive impact targets by 2025. These goals target to achieve: 

  • 100 per cent of products in compliance with Sustainable Packaging Guidelines;
  • 95 per cent of waste diverted from landfill across all production facilities;
  • 30 per cent reduction with Scope 1 & 2 emissions per kilogram of product;
  • 80 per cent of fibre to be forestry-certified or contains recycled content, with no controversial sourced fibre;
  • 100 per cent of stock range that meets Towards 2025 Targets; and 
  • Three facilities using renewable energy. 

“The sustainability objectives set by the Detmold Group showcase our strong commitment to sustainable packaging, which benefits our clients, their customers and most importantly the environment,” said Sascha Detmold Cox, acting CEO of the company.  

“We are taking the current standing of the Detmold Group and measuring it against these six positive impact targets, as well as aligning with progressive targets for the 2023 and 2024 calendar years,” she added. 

The objectives also align with the principles of “The Detmold Way,” which comprises the vision, purpose, and mission of the Detmold Group

The company’s positive impact targets are globally-accepted strategies that assist Detmold Group customers and distributors in complying with the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO), with two of the six targets directly aligning with the wider APCO targets. 

The company is slated to provide the first annual report measuring against the targets at the end of 2023.
