    2019 Annual Report & Action Plan Valvoline (Australia) Pty Ltd REPORTING FRAMEWORK OVERVIEW LEVEL DESCRIPTION ABOUT THE APCO FRAMEWORK The APCO Packaging Sustainability Framework (the Framework) aims to provide a consistent and transparent framework for assessing and tracking packaging sustainability across organisations. The Framework consists of thirteen independent criteria that belong to three separate categories. These categories are (i) Leadership, (ii) Packaging Outcomes and (iii) Operations. The diagram above shows the different criteria included within each of these three categories. There are two types of criteria within the Framework: • Core criteria are mandatory and must be answered by all Members when completing the Annual Reporting Tool. • Recommended criteria are not mandatory, but Members are encouraged to complete as many recommended criteria as possible. Each criteria is divided into five levels of performance ranging from ‘getting started’ to ‘beyond best practice’. The diagram above illustrates the key differences between performance levels.
