WRAP Announces UK Plastics Pact

WRAP UK Plastics Pact

Sustainability experts WRAP have today launched the UK Plastics Pact; a unique collaboration of UK governments and NGOs working to tackle the issue of plastic waste.

42 businesses and 15 other organisations have made commitments to the pact’s 4 ambitious targets:

• Eliminate problematic or unnecessary single-use plastic packaging through redesign, innovation or alternative (re-use) delivery models.

• 100% of plastic packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable.

• 70% of plastic packaging effectively recycled or composted.

• 30% average recycled content across all plastic packaging

Pact members include major food and drink manufacturers and retailers, plastic reprocessors, packing suppliers and government departments. WRAP will hold a launch party this evening in London, where CEO Marcus Gover, Dame Ellen MacArthur, Founder of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and Secretary of State for the Environment Rt. Hon Michael Gove will be speaking about the campaign.

WRAP also aim to expand the campaign in summer 2018 to involve citizens and encourage a widespread engagement with the plastic waste issue. For a full list of the organisations involved in the Pact visit the website here.
