US Plastics Pact launched

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s (EMF) Plastics Pact network has expanded into the US, with a new national Plastics Pact launching on Tuesday (25 August).

The new pact, which will be led by The Recycling Partnership with the support of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), has already gained the support of 60 signatories across the US supply chain.

Signatories to the Pact will aim to eliminate unnecessary plastic packaging by 2025, ensure all plastic packaging is 100 per cent reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025, recycle or compost 50 per cent of plastic packaging by 2025 and ensure at least 30 per cent recycled content in plastic packaging by 2025.
