MOSCOW (MRC) -- Greiner Packaging UK & Ireland (GPUK) has joined RECOUP, the UK charity and leading authority providing expertise and guidance across the plastics recycling value chain, said the company.
“Built on a network of valued members, collaboration is central to RECOUP’s activities, so we are very pleased that GPUK has become a member,” says RECOUP CEO Stuart Foster. “The organisation is committed to securing sustainable, circular, and practical solutions for plastic resources both in the UK and worldwide. Our membership includes over 170 businesses and organisations from brands and retailers, to recyclers, polymer producers and a range of other stakeholders.
“RECOUP’s aims remain the same as those that were agreed when we began 32 years ago: to help improve plastic recycling and recyclability; ensure plastic uses resources efficiently; and to protect the environment,” says Stuart Foster. “However, requirements and expectations have changed a great deal over three decades, from producer responsibility to the circular economy.
"Having the broadest possible spectrum of members from across the value chain enables us to have a good awareness and understanding of everyone’s opportunities and issues, which in turns allows us to deliver cross-sector balanced information and support, backed by science."
