The Canada Plastics Pact (CPP) is creating a circular economy in Canada in which plastic waste is kept in the economy and out of the environment. It is a unique multi-stakeholder, industry-led, cross-value chain collaboration platform which aims to tackle plastic packaging waste and pollution by bringing together businesses, government, non-governmental organizations and other key actors in the local plastics value chain. Canada Plastics Pact Partners are united, working together on achieving clear, actionable targets by the year 2025. 

CLEAR ACTIONABLE TARGETS by 2025

Define a list of plastic packaging that is to be designated as problematic or unnecessary and take measures to eliminate them

100%
plastic packaging designed to be reusable, recyclable or compostable

50%
of plastic packaging is effectively recycled or composted

30%
recycled content across all plastic packaging

The Canada Plastics Pact joins the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Plastics Pact network, a globally aligned response to plastic waste and pollution, that enables vital knowledge sharing and coordinated action. The Foundation, through its New Plastics Economy initiative, has united more than 1,000 organisations behind a common vision for a circular economy for plastic.

 

Together, we are tackling plastic pollution with plastic solutions.
