The UK Plastics Pact 2025 targets: What’s required?

Priority actions for UK Plastics Pact members.

What actions will Pact members need to take to get as close to the 2025 targets as possible? 

Policy is required, particularly to support the further elimination of unnecessary packaging including from uncut fresh produce and ensure the collection and recycling of plastic bags and wrapping. This will support businesses to achieve the targets of The UK Plastics Pact. 

But the planet can’t wait. We can all act now. 

WRAP is calling for urgent action from all businesses to join Pact members in: 

Removing unnecessary plastic.

Including the removal of packaging from uncut fresh produce, for 30% of sales of fresh produce to be loose by 2025.

Further simplifying plastic packaging design.

Moving to mono-materials across all pack formats and away from polystyrene (PS) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) by 2025.

Moving from pilots to scaled reuse/ refill systems.

Joining WRAP’s collaborative action group to facilitate this.
