The UK Plastics Pact to create a sustainable system for plastics

The UK Plastics Pact is a trailblazing, collaborative initiative that will create a circular economy for plastics.

Led by WRAP, It brings together businesses from across the entire plastics value chain with UK governments and NGOs to tackle the scourge of plastic waste.

The Pact will stimulate innovative new business models to reduce the total amount of plastic packaging.

It will also help build a stronger recycling system, where everyone takes more responsibility for their own waste, and ensure plastic packaging can be effectively recycled and made into new products and packaging and, with the support of governments, ensure consistent UK recycling is met.

The UK Plastics Pact is the first of a global network of such pacts, enabled by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy initiative.
