CLEVELAND – 2019年1月27日 – PolyOne Corporation, as part of its continuing sustainability efforts, today announced it has joined The UK Plastics Pact, a collaborative initiative committed to tackling plastic pollution. Its goal is to transform the way plastics are made, used, reused, and disposed.

该公约是与艾伦·麦克阿瑟基金会 (Ellen MacArthur Foundation) 合作制定的,是致力于循环经济的全球倡议网络中的首个倡议。This one is unique because it unites governments, local authorities, NGOs, and businesses involved in producing, selling, collecting, and reprocessing plastic. It is also underpinned by government policy and citizen action.

Since its launch in April 2018, The Pact has gained over 100 member organizations committed to making meaningful progress toward four ambitious targets for 2025:

  • Eliminate problematic or unnecessary single-use packaging through redesign, innovation, or alternative (reuse) delivery models
  • 100% of plastic packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable
  • 70% of plastic packaging effectively recycled or composted
  • 30% average recycled content across all plastic packaging

“Our sustainability efforts are focused on the four cornerstones of People, Product, Planet and Performance, and signing the UK Plastic Pact is one additional way for us to advance the Planet component,” said Walter Ripple, vice president, Sustainability at PolyOne. “Meeting the Pact targets will involve solving complex technical challenges, but the outcome of our collective efforts will support increasing levels of recycled content, adoption of refill and reuse solutions, and elimination of problematic and excessive plastic use.”

For additional information, see The UK Plastics Pact Report (2018/19).

NOTE to journalists: PolyOne is also a founding member of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, a different but complementary initiative that seeks to work across the plastics value chain on infrastructure development, education and engagement, innovation, and clean up efforts to keep plastic waste in the right place.
