       Packaging Covenant Action Plan 15th July 2005 to 30th June 2010


Executive Summary:
Sealed Air is firmly committed to the principles of the National Packaging Covenant and through this
action plan has outlined specific actions that will minimize the environmental impact of packaging and has
made the necessary contributions to the Transitional Funding Arrangements.


As a major packaging manufacturer in Australia, Sealed Air intends to use its position in the packaging
supply chain to ensure joint initiatives are undertaken with both suppliers and customers. Only through the
principles of Product Stewardship and the Shared Responsibility, can real and sustainable gains be made
in reducing the environmental impact of packaging.


As an initial Signatory to the Packaging Covenant, Sealed Air submitted Action Plan valid from November
2001 to November 2004, extended to June 2005 due to formal review of directions of National Packaging
Covenant by National Council.
This new Action Plan in many ways is a continuation of many of the projects / initiatives that were
commenced in the original action plans but reflecting the changes brought upon by National Council for
period July 2005 – June 2010. In the spirit of continuous improvement however, this plan will address
references to KPI’s as defined by National Council and set by Sealed Air ( industry based) with aim to
further develop the initiatives so that gains can be locked in, reviewed and regularly audited at Operations
level and as part of our Business Management System ( quality, environment, health and safety).
This includes:
•   Specific joint source reduction initiatives with customers;
•   Ensuring waste management becomes part of the culture in our manufacturing plants and the
    maximum possible amount of scrap is recycled;
•   Move scrap utilization projects into commercialization;
•   A systematic review of all packaging used for raw materials and finished goods to ensure that bulk
    packaging and recycled materials are used where applicable.
•   The effective communication of the Packaging Covenant and Action Plan achievements to all
    employees and customers;
•   A focus on R&D projects that will have a significant potential impact in reducing the environmental
    impact on packaging.
The above set of core initiatives will be the basis for a number of projects that will all have specific and
measurable deliverables. Sealed Air has appointed the Quality/ EHS coordinator to liaise with Technical,
Supply Chain, Marketing/ Sales and Production for regular review progress on the implementation of
initiatives, as well as to ensure metrics put in place to capture the benefits provide required benefits
towards good citizenship in environmental issues, leading the way from our direct competitors who, we
deplore not seeing becoming signatory to NPC.

Sealed Air Corporation also designs and sells packaging systems to facilitate the use of its products for its
customers. These products provide superior protection against shock, abrasion, and vibration compared
to other forms of packaging in similar applications. In the case of Cryovac® shrink films, they provide
superior shrink, toughness, clarity and gloss. These products are sold largely through industrial
distribution to a diverse set of industrial end users.


Sealed Air Corporation is dedicated to being pro-active on environmental issues affecting its business and
industry. The Environmental, Health and Safety Review Panel under the coordination of Quality Manager
will see that corporate and operating personnel is committed to ensuring that all operations are conducted
in a way that is consistent with sound environment practices. “Scrap to landfill (%)” is a key metric in the
company’s World Class Manufacturing program, and is reported for all facilities globally. A globally
managed database keeps track of quantities of materials recycled and sent to landfill in each major
location and Sealed Air PPD will start formal reporting of such data in mi-2006 after some difficulties in
doing such earlier. In addition a corporate environment team is ensuring research into recycling
technologies and processes is shared amongst all relevant locations.


Sealed Air Corporation, globally, uses significant amounts of recycled materials in its protective
packaging products by acquiring such materials from third parties, such as newspapers which are used in
its Jiffy® Padded Mailers and by recycling and reprocessing scrap materials generated in its
manufacturing processes. The company also participates in programs to collect packaging materials from
its distributors and other customers and recycle or reprocess these materials.

Sealed Air:


The materials used to manufacture Sealed Air packaging products include:


                •        a range of polyethylene-based polymers
                •        low density polyethylene (LDPE)
                •        linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE)
                •        polystyrene
                •        nylon
                •        aluminum foil / metallised foild
                •        non-woven polypropylene
                •        kraft and bleached sackkraft paper
                •        recycled newspapers

These materials are used to manufacture a range of products using several processes:
                •        film extrusion and co-extrusion
                •        foam extrusion
                •        printing
                •        laminating
                •        paper bag-making
                •        plastic converting
                •        plastic recycling

In extrusion operations, waste material may be generated in a number of different forms, ranging from
extruder startup waste in solid blocks of re-solidified plastic, loose in-process waste and slitting trim
material, through to finished-form scrap rolls of foam and bubble.

The majority of waste plastic material is currently re-processed internally and re-used in Sealed Air
products in varying quantities. Plastic waste that cannot be currently re-used internally is generally due to
its thickness, color, and lamination of other materials or chemical purging. This action plan addresses
various initiatives to ensure that only the minimal amount of internally generated waste is sent to landfill.

       Packaging Covenant Action Plan 15th July 2005 to 30th June 2010



Packaging Covenant Signatory Commitments
Sealed Air is a signatory to the National Packaging Covenant and is committed to honoring its signatory
commitments.

This action plan lists the specific actions that Sealed Air has taken, and will take to improve
environmental outcomes in the production, usage and reprocessing of packaging materials over the
period 15th July 2005 to 30th June 2010.

Sealed Air will provide the appropriate financial support to optimise kerbside recycling through the
Transitional Funding Arrangements. It also is actively applying the Covenant principles in its own
operations.
Sealed Air sees its position as a significant player in the protective packaging industry as an ideal way to
promote the adoption of the principles and undertakings of the Covenant.

In adopting the principle of product stewardship as defined in pages 4 and 5 of The National Packaging
Covenant “ Strategic Partnership in Packaging” 15TH July 2005 to 30th June 2010, Sealed Air will work
closely with suppliers and customers to implement the principles of the Packaging Covenant. By working
cooperatively, Sealed Air aims to implement policies and practices that contribute to the effective
environmental management of packaging through its lifecycle.

This will focus on areas that Sealed Air has a strong influence over, namely increasing the recycled
content in its products and making consumers aware of the recycling options available for Sealed Air
products. By utilising material specifications, process technology and proven design techniques and
expertise, Sealed Air will also work with customers to ensure that the minimum amount of packaging is
used in an application while maintaining product integrity. The Environmental Code of Practice for
Packaging will be actively used when working with designing new products.

Sealed Air will also be actively involved in industry wide initiatives such as community education and
promoting the use of post-consumer recycling streams.


While Sealed Air has a proven history of dealing with environmental issues, and has already initiated
many activities and programs, continuous improvement is a fundamental part of the way it does business.
Through its global World Class Manufacturing program, the principles of continuous improvement,
employee involvement, and customer satisfaction are constantly communicated, implemented and
measured. Sealed Air sees the National Packaging Covenant, and its emphasis on continuous
improvement, as a natural fit with its World Class Manufacturing approach. Sealed Air will commit to
report to the Covenant Council on a regular basis its progress in implementing the Action Plan.

       Packaging Covenant Action Plan 15th July 2005 to 30th June 2010



The National Packaging Covenant:


Current status of initiatives:
Sealed Air is an initial signatory of the National Packaging Covenant since November 2001. A separate
Action Plan Report has been written detailing some of the actions taken and improvements made to
minimize the environmental impact of packaging during the life of that Plan. Some of these include:
•   Numerous source reduction initiatives that have reduced the amount of material used while still
    maintaining product integrity;
•   WCM projects which have resulted in less waste being created as part of the manufacturing process;
•   Installation of capital items and new technology that have had an impact on improving yields and
    reducing quality problems, with the end result, substantially less material being sent to landfill;
•   Working with key customers with view of helping them to reduce the scrap packaging created as a
    result of their applications.
•   Review of packaging used for raw materials that has seen new forms of packaging introduced with
    some savings through bulk packaging and recycling of empty plastic bags.
•   Pallet optimization of our products with substantial results in pallet pooling
•   Substantial results in re-use of scrap that was previously sent to landfill being economically processed
    and substituted for virgin products.
•   Provide regular equipment maintenance and service to ensure the specially designed and installed
    packaging systems ‘ reliability and optimum utilization of packaging material with minimum waste
    packaging generated.


Management commitment:
The Sealed Air Management is firmly committed to the Packaging Covenant process and objectives.
A cross-functional group of executives, comprising Sales, Marketing, Technical, Supply Chain and
Manufacturing has reviewed the actions committed to in this plan, and ensured that the relevant
resources are available to achieve successful outcomes.
In addition, the relevant projects and initiatives, committed to in this plan, have been incorporated into the
relevant individual Management Business Objectives (MBO) for the management team (Top executive
down to Line supervisors).
While there will be numerous projects outlined in this plan, they will be classified under a set of six cores
initiatives that will have the most impact on achieving the aims of the National Packaging Covenant. In
order to ensure that the appropriate focus and resource is given to the plan, a group of Packaging
Covenant Leaders has been selected from the organization to monitor and report on each of the six cores
initiatives being addressed in the new plan.

       Packaging Covenant Action Plan 15th July 2005 to 30th June 2010

Review system:
A cross-functional team has been established as the Packaging Covenant Action Plan Review Team.
This team will be coordinated by Quality Manager/ EHS Coordinator and made up of the Production/ EHS
Manager, Technical& Engineering Manager, Supply Chain Manager and Industrial Packaging Manager.
The team will meet on a quarterly basis and will review what actions have been completed in that quarter
as required in the plan. In addition the team will ensure that the relevant metrics for those initiatives are
presented and reviewed.
The Team will also ensure that sufficient resources are provided for the relevant initiatives to ensure that
appropriate progress is made. Minutes of these meetings will assist to easier reporting to the Covenant
Council.
Product Stewardship:
In this new action plan, Sealed Air will continue on with many of the projects and development that were
commenced in the inaugural plan. However in order to ensure resources are focused on the areas that will
have the maximum impact, the projects in the new plan have been classified under six cores initiatives:
Core initiative                      Objective                                 Product stewardship

Covenant objective and performance goals
The objective is to reduce environmental degradation arising from the disposal of used
packaging and conserve resources through better design and production and the re-use
of recycling of used packaging material.


To meet this objective, the covenant performance will be assessed on four (4) specific
performance goals encompassing environmental, social and economic performance.


   1. Packaging optimized to integrate considerations about resource efficiency,
      maximum resource re-utilisation, product protection, safety and hygiene.
   2. Efficient resource recovery systems for consumer packaging and paper
   3. Consumers able to make informed decisions about consumption, use and
      disposal of packaging products
   4. Supply chain members and other signatories able to demonstrate how their
      actions contribute to goals (1) - (3) above.
   5. All signatories demonstrate continuous improvement in their packaging through
      their individual Action Plans and Annual Reports

Conclusion
Sealed Air is committed to providing its customers with the best possible packaging products and
solutions. These products provide innovative and value –enhancing features for customers but do not
neglect initiatives and obligations provided by the practical framework of the National Packaging
Covenant for minimizing the environmental impact on packaging.


As a self-regulatory framework, the Covenant provides a practical, yet comprehensive means for
companies to address environmental improvement in a manner that incorporates all aspects of the
product life cycle (product stewardship) and involves all members of the supply chain (shared
responsibility).


Sealed Air has identified and is implementing specific actions that will reduce the environmental impact of
packaging. These actions cover the full product stewardship issues as well as actions addressed in
cooperation with suppliers and customers.
