ABCRC Announced as Canada Plastics Pact Partner
April 08, 2021
The Canada Plastics Pact (CPP) is a multi-stakeholder, industry led, cross-value chain collaboration platform formed in January 2021 that is tackling plastic waste and pollution in Canada. The CPP unites businesses, government, non-governmental organizations and other key actors in the local plastics value chain behind a vision of creating a circular economy in Canada, in which plastic waste is kept in the economy and out of the environment with clear, actionable targets for 2025. By aligning with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s global Plastics Pact network and the New Plastics Economy’s common vision of a circular economy for plastics, CPP partners commit to fundamentally rethinking the way we design, use, and reuse plastic packaging.
Today, CPP welcomed 13 new partners, including Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Corporation (ABCRC). “Following the launch of the CPP in January 2021, we saw tremendous cross-Canada interest from companies along the plastics value chain that are passionate about, and aligned with, a vision for a circular economy for plastics,” says George Roter, Managing Director, CPP. “Our newest partners add new perspectives and industries to deliver on our ambitious, action-oriented agenda.”
CPP also officially announced the formation of its first CPP Advisory Council to lead and engage partners in the substantive work of the CPP. ABCRC’s President & CEO, Guy West, will be a member of that council.
