The New Plastics Economy Global Commitment creates a common vision and provides specific targets for businesses, governments, and other stakeholders to address plastic waste and pollution at its source.
The overarching goal of the Global Commitment is to create a new normal for plastic packaging. Targets will be reviewed every 18 months, and become increasingly ambitious over the coming years. Company signatories will publish annual data on their progress on plastics targets.
