United States Plastics Pact

WRAP’s role 

WRAP worked with the U.S. Plastics Pact’s steering committee (including The Recycling Partnership, WWF, and The Ellen MacArthur Foundation) to support the development of their Pact and Roadmap to delivery in collaboration with all members and supporters.

WRAP has also helped the USPP develop a process for monitoring and tracking member actions.

“WRAP’s experience building and implementing Plastics Pact roadmaps was instrumental to the development of the U.S. Plastics Pact’s Roadmap to 2025. We are grateful for their support and continued partnership.”

Emily Tipaldo, Executive Director, USPP
