Sustainability is a pillar of our business
Sustainability factors into everything we do
Sustainability factors into everything we do at Visy - the products we make, our resource recovery cycles and our business, including making our employees safer, our local communities healthier and our customers more profitable.
Limiting our impact on the environment is one of our key missions. We take responsibility for the entire lifespan of our products - from conception through to when they are recycled into something else.
