The first two goals share a vision of the future we want for plastics packaging, and they are that:
100% of plastics packaging will be reused, recycled, or recovered by 2040. And that 100% of plastics packaging will be recyclable or recoverable by 2030. Those who follow plastics recycling know this is a tall order. These are genuinely ambitious, stretch goals, and they’ll require our industry’s best thinking, working with stakeholders across several value chains. So, new ways of looking at materials and systems for capturing and reusing them. But given the rate of innovation in technology, deployment, and systems development. We believe they’re achievable.
In addition to accelerating our progress
These goals are designed to support major brands and retailers. And many of whom are making their commitments. Besides, we want to help them achieve their goals. In many cases, we’re already working together to increase consumer access to recycling. We explore new technologies and fund infrastructure. We believe that setting and sharing these goals will help to focus and better align these collaborative efforts moving forward.
Innovations in plastics packaging
It’s essential because of ongoing changes in plastics packaging. And how we manage to package after use. Are essential to improving living standards across the globe while enabling populations to live more sustainably.
Plastic packaging keeps things
We rely on fresh, sanitary, clean, and in some cases, even sterile. Often, plastics can provide these benefits using significantly fewer resources and with lower environmental impacts than alternatives. Besides, while plastics already contribute to sustainability. We recognize more must be done to increase recycling, recovery, and reuse of plastics under a circular economy framework.
