Multinational corporations such as Coca-Cola, Danone, Oréal, PepsiCo, H & M and Unilever signed a worldwide commitment to eradicate plastic pollution.
Within the framework of Our Ocean Conference in Indonesia, more than 250 organizations have held on Global Commitment for the New Economy of Plastics, an initiative led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and UN Environment.
"The global commitment to the new economy of plastics is the most ambitious package of goals we have seen now in the fight to overcome plastic contamination," says Erik Solheim, Managing Director of the UN Department.
Among the signatories are companies that use 20 percent of all packaging of this material worldwide, apart from packaging manufacturers, such as Amcor and plastic manufacturers like Novamont, the UN said in a statement.
Eliminate packaging plugs unnecessary and replacement of disposable packaging with recyclability is one of the goals.
In addition, it is intended that all packaging of this material may be reused, recycled or composted.
It is also intended to increase the amount of recycled plastic and converted into new goods or packaging.
Companies will annually publish information about their progress on these goals, reviewed every 1
The commitment is supported by the Global Fund for Nature (WWF), the World Economic Forum, the Consumer Goods Forum, 40 universities, institutions and academics, as well as 15 financial institutions and five venture capital funds.
