RECOUP comments on Unilever plastic packaging recyclability pledge

Date Published: Monday 23rd January 2017

Unilever has pledged to ensure that all of the plastic packaging is ‘fully reusable, recyclable or compostable’ by 2025.

Stuart Foster said: “The importance of recycling and resource efficiency in achieving circular economy goals for packaging should leave us in no doubt that there must be change. In our role as plastic value chain co-ordinators, Recoup has ensured that guidance on designing plastic packaging for recycling has been available and promoted for many years.

“But, there needs to be a desire from supply chains to embrace the opportunity. It is fantastic that a leading brand owner like Unilever is stepping up to the challenge. They are also ideally placed to lead innovation and development of technical solutions for the traditionally hard to recycle plastic packaging items so I look forward to seeing how this develops.”
