LOGOPLASTE & the ELLEN MACARTHUR FOUNDATION PIONEERING FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
On October the 29th, 2018, in Bali, at the “Our Ocean Conference” organized by the Indonesia Government, the “New Plastics Economy Global Commitment” was presented by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
The “New Plastics Economy Global Commitment” aims to create a new scenario for plastic packaging, increasing the amount of reused or recycled plastics in new products and promoting innovation to ensure 100% of Plastic packaging can be reused, recycled or composted by 2025.
LOGOPLASTE is proud to announce that it is among the first members to sign the Global Commitment. This first group of companies represents 20% of all plastic packaging produced worldwide.
Filipe de Botton, Logoplaste’s Chairman & Chairman of Logoplaste’s Sustainability Board, was extremely happy:
“This is another step in LOGOPLASTE’S support of a Global Sustainability Agenda, streamlining with the company’s existing Industrial Model and Development Capabilities, well known in to the global market. From its inception, Logoplaste has always had concern for both the environment and social responsibility. These two areas, alongside an innovative backbone, have been the cornerstones of the company’s business module."
Commitments are very clear:
- Develop packaging solutions that are fully recyclable or reusable by 2025
- Increase the incorporation of recycled materials in our packaging (30% on average) by 2025
- Drive recycling activities and technologies
