The UK Plastics Pact is transforming the way that the UK makes, uses and disposes of plastic. 

Over halfway to our 2025 targets, the Roadmap sets out the specific milestones and activities which are critical if we are to achieve our goals in the years remaining.

Key points

The Roadmap outlines the required actions by members from all parts of the plastics value chain to deliver the four targets.

It includes specific roadmaps for recyclable and compostable plastic packaging as well as a reuse and refill roadmap under Target 2.

It details the key activities and member actions needed by the end of 2022, 2023. 2024 and 2025
