The U.S. Plastics Pact

The U.S. Plastics Pact will bring together businesses, government entities, non-governmental organizations, researchers, and other stakeholders who will work collectively toward a common vision of a circular economy for plastics, as outlined by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy Initiative. This vision aims to ensure that plastics never become waste by eliminating the plastics we don’t need, innovating to ensure that the plastics we do need are reusable, recyclable, or compostable, and circulating all the plastic items we use to keep them in the economy and out of the environment.


United Toward a Common Vision

By bringing together all stakeholders and driving collaborative action, the U.S. Plastics Pact will deliver a step change toward a circular economy,  enabling companies and governments in the U.S. to collectively meet impactful targets by 2025 that they could not meet on their own.  Public-private led collaboration can help address the massive undertaking needed to change the U.S. systems that produce, use, recover, and process plastics with solution-driven actions. This collaboration is why The Recycling Partnership and World Wildlife Fund are leading the development of a U.S. Plastics Pact to join the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s global Plastics Pact network.
