WRAP's role

WRAP provided strategic advice to the Canadian team to finalise the Plastics Pact, which was launched in January 2021.

WRAP has worked with The Natural Step, National Zero Waste Council of Canada and other partners to support their ambitious strategic Roadmap, and is working with Canada Plastics Pact on the Roadmap’s next phase.
