The New Plastics Economy aims to move away from the current ‘take, make, dispose’ plastics economy towards one based on circular economy principles. The vision for such a system is that plastics are kept in the economy and out of the environment.
In order to realise this ambitious vision, the New Plastics Economy initiative, is launching the Plastics Pact. Each pact will bring together national and local authorities, businesses involved in designing, producing, using and recycling plastics, as well as NGOs, innovators and citizens.
The Plastics Pact is the only initiative of its kind to bring together all relevant stakeholders behind a common agenda and jointly set ambitious, time-bound objectives.
