The Global Commitment has brought together over 500 organizations around a shared vision of a circular economy in UAE. Companies representing 20% of all plastic packaging produced worldwide have agreed to aggressive 2025 commitments to help realize that common vision, driven by the purpose of eliminating plastic pollution at its source. This third annual progress report examines how these signatories are doing in terms of meeting their goals.
What Does the Term “Global Commitment” Mean?
Arab businesses and governments sign the Global Commitment to alter the way we make, use, and recycle plastic. They’ll fight to remove unnecessary plastics, innovate so that everything plastic we do need can be safely reused, repurposed, or composted, and circulate everything we use to keep it in the economy and out of the environment.
The Global Commitment has already attracted over 500 signatories who are committed to establishing a plastic circular economy.
These include well-known consumer brands like Nestle Middle East, Hunter, Alrawabi, Coffee Planet Company, as well as the world’s largest retailer, Nadiya, major packaging producers like Honaz and Ahbar, and two of the largest international resource management specialists, Veolia and Suez, which together account for 20% of all plastic packaging produced globally.
