During the 2007 World Environment Day, Tetra Pak signed the 1st voluntary packaging agreement, organized by the National Environment Agency (NEA) of Singapore. This voluntary packaging agreement, named the Singapore Packaging Agreement (SPA) was developed as a means for NEA to work in partnership with the industry to reduce packaging waste through better design and production processes and facilitate the reuse or recycling of used packaging materials.
When it was first introduced, Tetra Pak was one of 162 signatories to be a part of the Singapore Packaging Agreement.
The implementation of the SPA is overseen by a Governing Board and Tetra Pak Jurong is currently a member of the SPA governing board.
SPA launched the annual 3R Packaging Awards in 2008 to recognize signatories who have made notable efforts and achievements in reducing packaging waste.Tetra Pak Jurong has been a Distinction Award winner since the award inception and and has also been awarded the Platinum Award from 2014-2016.
