Plastics are key materials in innovation and for helping us reduce greenhouse gas emissions and tackle climate change. Our everyday lives rely on plastics, but any plastic waste in the environment is unacceptable. Plastics must be sustainable.
We are working towards a positive future that brings to life the responsible actions, partnerships and innovations the European plastics industry is making. While our industry has an essential role to play, this transformation is not one we can undertake alone. It requires all value chain actors – manufacturers, brand owners, consumers, recyclers, policymakers – to work collectively towards our shared goals.
To accelerate this transition, we need to harness the power of the Single Market. Harmonised policy and regulation which promotes collection and recycling, and increased investment is essential.
At Plastics Europe, we are committed to this journey of change and enabling a sustainable future for our members, partners, and society at large.
