Plastic Waste – Business and Government Commitments

On November 5, 2020, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation released its “Global Commitment 2020 Progress Report” which ”… looks at how Global Commitment signatories, which together account for more than 20% of the plastic packaging market, are faring against their 2025 targets on plastics … 118 businesses that produce, use, and recycle large volumes of plastic packaging … and 17 governments across five continents … have reported on progress against public targets … The Global Commitment unites businesses, governments, and other organisations behind a common vision to address plastic waste and pollution at its source, beginning with plastic packaging … all Global Commitment signatories are working to: eliminate the plastic items we don’t need; innovate so all plastics we do need are designed to be safely reused, recycled, or composted; [and] circulate everything we use to keep it in the economy and out of the environment …” - The web link to the progress report is included in the post on the home page of Plastic Food Packaging Waste News at #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #ellenmacarthurfoundation
