Canada Plastics Pact (CPP) has welcomed 12 new partners, including leading consumer goods organizations, industry associations, governments, converters and recycling organizations from across Canada.
The CPP now has over 65 partners who bring diverse perspectives to meet collective challenges as we move towards ambitious 2025 goals to create a circular economy for plastic packaging in Canada that stays in the economy and out of the environment.
Since the CPP launched earlier this year, the partners have started work on a number of key initiatives to meet the 2025 targets. Significantly, the CPP announced last month that it would lead the consultation and implementation of the Consumer Goods Forum’s Golden Design Rules for the design of plastic packaging in Canada, which provide a framework that leads to fewer overall plastics and better plastics for the recycling system. In addition, the CPP is currently developing a roadmap to meet the 2025 targets, as well as a longer-term vision for a circular economy for plastics in Canada, which will be published this fall.
New partners include: two Canadian industry associations; one of the largest health and hygiene companies in the country; Recycling organizations from across the country that are increasing the regional diversity of CPP; and three plastics processors who represent a new area in the plastics value chain that joins the work of CPP.
The new partners of the CPP are: Bioform; Canadian Bottled Water Association (CBWA); City of Montreal Metropolitan Community (MMC); Canadian Dairy Processors Association (DPAC); Redirect NS; co Entreprises Quebec; GS1 Canada; Kimberly-Clark; Polytainers Inc; British Columbia Recycling Council (RCBC); TerraCycle and Wentworth technologies.
