The network advancing plastics circularity


The Alliance is a community of pioneering CEOs dedicated to building a circular economy for plastic. Our membership is growing rapidly. We have convened some 70 companies from across the plastics value chain including brand owners, resin producers, converters, waste managers, recyclers and technology providers. Working together, we are shaping and investing into pathways to a sustainable future.

Join our community of action

The plastic waste challenge demands immediate action. At the Alliance, this is exactly our mission: working with our member companies to drive action on the ground. Together, we identify the most promising projects for addressing plastic waste and invest hundreds of millions of dollars into these opportunities. Our goal, always, is to demonstrate and de-risk new ideas that are economically self-sustaining and can be scaled and replicated by others.

Our projects range from improving the efficiency of waste collection systems to ramping up recycling capacity, and from developing consumer re-use business models to improving the purity of plastic waste feedstock streams. Through this work, we are building a future in which business and society can use plastic sustainably.

Through deep involvement in our work, member companies can expect to:

  • Deliver impact on the ground

    Today, the Alliance has 39 projects in development. As they come onstream, and as we develop more projects, we will collect and recycle millions of tons of plastic waste every year. Our members shape where and how we develop these projects.

  • Pioneer the future of plastics

    Consumers, regulators and policy makers are ramping up their focus on plastic waste. At this moment of inflection, our members are defining a new future for the plastic system by shaping the standards, technologies, and markets of tomorrow.

  • Meet ambitious pledges and commitments

    Recognising the rising pressure to operate on a sustainable basis, companies are making bold pledges. But without collective action to drive systems change, companies will struggle to honour these public commitments, and face reputational damage.

  • Join a platform for leadership & learning

    Sustainability is evolving rapidly. The Alliance is a platform for learning from the best, as well as seeding new ideas with peers. This platform operates at two levels:
    1) Our Board: a community of world leading CEOs
    2) Our expert groups: communities of leading practitioners

  • Inform the public debate

    The global conversation about plastic waste is growing ever more heated. But much of the discussion is over simplistic and often misinformed. The Alliance works with our member companies to build public understanding around complex issues.

Our Members

Our members are committed to act. They invest in us through funding, expertise, and resources to enable our vision. Together we demonstrate projects and programmes that create and extract value—proving the investment market—from plastic waste. We look forward to forging more partnerships and creating more collective action.
