The Plastics Pact Network

Plastics Pact Network, a project of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, combines national and regional projects throughout the world to develop solutions for a circular economy for plastic.

The Plastics Pact Network, created by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, is a globally organized response to plastic waste and pollution that allows for critical sharing of knowledge and coordinated action. 

It’s a collection of national and regional (multi-country) projects that bring together important stakeholders to develop solutions for a circular economy for plastic that are adapted to each region. 

Each initiative is directed by a local organization that brings together corporations, government institutions, non-governmental organizations, and citizens around a common vision and a set of ambitious local goals to:

  • Redesign and innovation can help you get rid of superfluous and hazardous plastic packaging.
  • Make the switch from single-use to reusable products.
  • All plastic packaging should be reusable, recyclable, or compostable.
  • Increase the amount of plastic packaging that is reused, collected, recycled, or composted.
  • Increase the amount of recycled plastic in plastic packaging.

The Plastic Pact Network of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation includes national plastic pacts in the United Kingdom, France, Chile, the Netherlands, South Africa, Portugal, the United States, Poland, and Canada. The European Plastics Pact and the Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific Islands (ANZPAC) Plastics Pact are two regional pacts.

To speed the shift to a circular economy for plastics, best practices and lessons learned are shared across regions.
