EUMEPS pledge well received by EC

Nov 21 2018

Following an EU-wide pledging campaign as part of the European Plastics Strategy, an assessment of the delivered voluntary committments show that at least 10 million tons of recycled plastics could be supplied by 2025 if the pledges are fully delivered.

By the end of October the Commission received over 60 pledges and is now reviewing them in more detail to analyse their impact per plastic types on supply and demand aspects. The main pledges received came from plastics recyclers, industry associations for Expanded Polystyrene and brand owners mainly for PET packaging (see list of pledgers).
