A successor initiative: Help shape the future.  

WRAP has initiated work to consider the successor agreement to The UK Plastics Pact. We are working closely with businesses across The UK Plastics Pact membership and with partners including The Ellen MacArthur Foundation and stakeholders across the global Plastics Pact network to ensure a continued alignment of initiatives.  

Priorities include: 
  • Focus on delivery of the original objectives of The UK Plastics Pact, once the supporting regulatory framework is in place so we can continue to embed a circular economy for plastic packaging.  
  • Alignment with net-zero objectives. 
  • Create an initiative that supports industry in reducing the environmental impact of all packaging.

Join us and work with industry leaders tackling plastic pollution now. And be at the table to shape the future as we develop the plans to realise a circular economy for plastics and meet net-zero objectives.
