Interall Group member of the European Plastics Pact
Published on 11.05.2020
On 6 March 2020, Interall Group became a member of the European Plastics Pact, which was launched in Brussels on the same date. – From the plastic wrapper on your cereal bar to your shampoo bottle: in five years, all of the plastic that we use on a daily basis will be recyclable or reusable. That’s just one of the goals that more than 80 signatories of the European Plastics Pact committed to in Brussels. This is the first time that so many different parties – from supermarkets to food manufacturers to governments – have committed to this on a European scale. And Interall Group was proud to be one of these signatories: striving towards less plastic waste, far more reuse, and much more recycling.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
The European Plastics Pact is a set of agreements between plastic producers, large businesses, governments and recyclers. To keep both land and oceans clean, the pact consists of four quantitative targets that the signatories have committed to reach by 2025:
• Make all plastic packaging fully recyclable and, where possible, suitable for reuse.
• Reduce unnecessary plastic usage, and reduce use of plastics made from petroleum, by at least a 20%.
•Improve the current collection, sorting and recycling capacity by at least 25%.
• Use at least 30% recycled plastic in new packaging and products.
