Avery takes corporate social responsibility seriously. It is important to us that we take responsibility beyond our fixed, legal obligations: for our employees, for the environment and for social projects. Transparency is important to us - what have we already achieved and where do we still want to improve?

The label material for most of our paper-based labels is sourced from FSC®-certified forests (FSC® C118222).

Avery Products is a member of APCO (Australian Packaging Covenant). Being an APCO member helps ensure that packaging materials avoid landfill and the maximum value of the materials, energy and labour is retained within the local economy. We maintain compliance by meeting agreed annual packaging targets and providing corresponding reports which are published for public viewing access on the APCO website.
Proudly Made In Australia
At Avery we are so proud to locally manufacture our products out of our factory in Castle Hill, Sydney.
Manufacturing locally means you’re not only supporting local jobs and the Australian economy, but also getting the best quality products and leaving a smaller transport footprint.
