MOSCOW (MRC) -- A strategic partnership has been formed between Amcor, Mars, P&G, and Delterra to bring the latter’s upstream and downstream circular plastics solutions to scale in the Global South – an effort hoped to cut down on plastic pollution in the region, said Packagingeurope.
In the lead-up to the second negotiating committee meeting for a Global Plastics Treaty (INC-2), the partners state that plastic pollution ‘is a symptom of the broader issue of underperforming or non-existent waste management and circularity solutions’.
As such, the partnership seeks to invest in waste prevention programmes across the value chain. This includes the global rollout of Plastic IQ, Deltarra’s digital tool designed to help companies understand and improve their plastic footprint – enabling them to design waste out of the system and tackle upstream waste.
Furthermore, the company’s Rethinking Recycling programme aims to capture recyclable and compostable materials and direct them back into the loop, contributing to supply and demand. The investments are also set to develop material traceability solutions to provide transparency on source, quality, and ethical concerns along the recycling value chain.
We remind, Amcor, a global leader in developing and producing responsible packaging solutions, announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Moda Systems, a leading manufacturer of state-of-the-art, automated protein packaging machines.
