Founding Charter Signatories
On June 14th, 2022 Kellogg’s, Procter & Gamble, Aire Global, RNIB, and PAC Global have become the first signatories of the PAC IOU Charter. The charter calls on the packaging industry to embed inclusivity and accessibility into all aspects of the package design process so that packaging is accessible to everyone.
This PAC IOU Charter is to unite, galvanize and champion package design by everyone for everyone.
The aim of this Charter is to ensure people’s differences are recognized and incorporated into every stage of the packaging design and manufacturing process.
By endorsing this Charter, organizations have affirmed their commitment to creating equal opportunities for all, and to make packaging easy to use, and associated information easy to access, use and understand.
This Charter goes beyond design concepts and products, extending to the inclusivity of the industries workforce now and in the future.
Together, the organizations who support this Charter share the PAC IOU vision of an inclusive packaging workforce. A workforce where differences are valued and celebrated with the aim of creating a world where everyone can develop to their full potential, inspiring new approaches to innovation within universal package design, organically leading to accessible packaging becoming the norm globally.
