STOROPACK IS PART OF THE GLOBAL INITIATIVE “ALLIANCE TO END PLASTIC WASTE”, WHICH SEEKS TO SAVE THE PLANET FROM THE SCOURGE OF PLASTIC POLLUTION.

Plastic waste in the environment, especially in the world’s oceans, is a huge problem. Together with some 40 other firms, we have signed up to the mission of allowing no plastic waste to enter the environment and cleaning up existing plastic pollution.

The global initiative “Alliance to End Plastic Waste” involves corporations from around the world and along the entire plastic value chain. The participating companies have already pledged funds totaling roughly one billion US dollars. Over the next five years, it is expected that at least 1.5 billion dollars will be made available for a variety of projects and initiatives.
 

The Alliance to End Plastic Waste pursues a four-part strategy:

INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT

The development of infrastructure for cities and regions that are particularly badly affected by plastic waste.

Aim: to collect and manage waste and increase recycling

    

EDUCATION AND ENGAGEMENT

Educating consumers and the affected population about recycling processes.

Aim: to raise awareness

INNOVATION

Investment in new technologies that facilitate recycling and the recovery of plastics.

Aim: to develop innovative solutions for packaging recycling and enable a circular economy

    

CLEANUP

Removing the plastic waste that has already built up in oceans and rivers, which is a particularly urgent task.

Aim: to clean up the plastic already in the environment
