Krehalon is a signatory of the UK Plastics Pact

December 1, 2018

Krehalon is a proud member of the UK Plastics Pact – a UK cross-sector initiative, demonstrating global leadership in transforming the plastics economy and tackling plastics pollution.

The UK Plastics Pact, led by WRAP, is the first of a global network of such pacts, enabled by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy.

The initiative is unique because it unites governments, local authorities, NGOs and businesses involved in producing, selling, collecting and reprocessing plastic, to deliver ambitious targets for change by 2025.

By 2025, the UK Plastics Pact will transform the UK plastic packaging sector and help stop plastics polluting the environment by:

  • Eliminating problematic or unnecessary single-use packaging through redesign, innovation or alternative (re-use) delivery models.
  • 100% of plastic packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable.
  • 70% of plastic packaging effectively recycled or composted.
  • 30% average recycled content across all plastic packaging.

As a signatory of the UK Plastics Pact, Krehalon commits to work collaboratively with all members of the Pact towards the delivery of its relevant targets.

We are delighted to be part of such positive platform for innovation, dialogue and action. We strongly believe that full supply chain collaboration will aid a quicker transition to a circular plastics system that keeps plastics out of the environment.’

– commented Steven Hinchly, Sales & Marketing Director for Krehalon Europe.
