ADDRESSING AN ISSUE
OF GLOBAL PROPORTIONS
about our effort to end plastic
waste in the environment
over the next five years
global companies actively participating for a better future
“Everyone agrees that plastic waste does not belong in our oceans or anywhere in the environment. This is a complex and serious global challenge that calls for swift action and strong leadership. This new alliance is the most comprehensive effort to date to end plastic waste in the environment. I urge all companies, big and small and from all regions and sectors, to join us."
We are a not-for-profit organization, partnering with the finance community, government and civil society, including environmental and economic development NGOs. We are working to make the dream of a world without plastic waste a reality. We have a strong team composed of the world’s top minds from across the entire plastics value chain — chemical and plastic manufacturers, consumer goods companies, retailers, converters, and waste management companies.
Plastics provide health, safety, sustainability and convenience benefits, especially in the developing world where plastic products have helped improve living standards, hygiene and nutrition. They have an important place in our world — but not in our environment.
We are working across the plastics value chain on infrastructure, education and engagement, innovation, and clean up efforts to keep plastic waste in the right place.
Of concentrated areas of plastic waste already in the environment, particularly the major conduits of waste, like rivers, that carry land-based plastic waste to the sea.
