A welcome to the Polyolefin Circular Economy Platform from Secretary General Venetia Spencer
Polyolefins are extremely valuable and versatile plastics. They are also vital materials if we want to decarbonise our society and have high quality, safe, eco-friendly lives. But we can't do that by simply throwing plastic away after we've used it. We must be responsible for the plastic that we produce ― and that means only making what we need, designing it for re-use in its first life, and then collecting, recycling and reusing it again and again...and again... for as many lives as possible.
Our goal is to transform the entire polyolefin system from a linear to a circular one by bringing together organisations from every point in the polyolefin chain: brand owners, retailers, waste management organisations, recyclers, converters, producers and everyone else. Through dialogue and collaboration in working groups, PCEP is delivering innovative solutions to today’s barriers.
PCEP has called for investment decisions taken by Member States, the EU and all economic actors, as part of the EU recovery package to be focused on delivering the circular economy. More here
