Malaysia Sustainable Plastic Alliance

WRAP has been funded by Defra to support the government and businesses of Malaysia to develop a collaborative agreement to tackle plastic waste.

Based on the UK Plastic Pact model, the Malaysia Sustainable Plastic Alliance (MaSPA) will bring together stakeholders from across sectors to create a circular economy for plastics in Malaysia. 

In December 2021, Malaysia launched their Plastics Sustainability Roadmap 2021-2030, outlining the national targets agreed to reduce plastics pollution.

The Malaysia Plastics Sustainability Roadmap 2021-2030 has been set up by the government to address plastic waste pollution and ensure the country’s economic prosperity and social wellbeing.

The framework, to be implemented in three phases, will serve as a compass for stakeholders in preserving plastics based on the circular economy concept throughout the value chain.

The framework is one of the actions of Malaysia’s Roadmap Towards Zero Single-Use Plastics which was approved by the Cabinet in 2018.
