Partnerships to End Plastic Waste

Though our impact is large, we know we cannot achieve our goals alone. We invest in partnerships to extend our reach and capitalize on our joint initiatives. From agreements for circular resins and enhanced recycling infrastructure, to joining with industry allies for change, our investments which are far-reaching through the value chain.

Our partners representing the environmental sustainability area are critical to our success in ending plastic waste, promoting a circular economy, and advocating for the power of plastics. Each partner performs a specific role relative to our sustainability goals. Although every partner is important, we believe our impact is greatest with the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and The Recycling Partnership.

Alliance to End Plastic Waste

In January 2019, we joined the Alliance to End Plastic Waste as a founding member. The Alliance is a new organization, now comprised of 42 companies and has made an initial multi-billion-dollar commitment to invest in solutions to eliminate plastic waste in the environment. The focus of the Alliance is narrowed to four main areas: infrastructure development, innovation, education and engagement, and clean-up.

New Plastics Economy Global Commitment

Announced in June 2019, we are a proud signatory of the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment to eliminate plastic pollution at its source. By signing the Global Commitment, we have pledged to:

  • Take action to eliminate problematic or unnecessary plastic packaging
  • 100% of plastic packaging to be reusable, recyclable, or compostable
  • A target of 10% post-consumer recycled content across all plastic packaging used
  • Take action to increase reusable packaging

Operation Clean Sweep

Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) is an international program designed to prevent and help keep plastic litter materials out of the marine environment.

As an active member since 2012, we have pledged to prevent resin pellet, flake, and powder loss. The organization is a critical component to our Impact 2025 strategy, and is an important guide in many of our manufacturing facilities.
