Unilever's Commitment to a Circular Plastic Economy

Plastic pollution is a global challenge that demands a collective response. Unilever is championing a circular plastic economy, collaborating with partners like the International Potato Center (IPC) to drive systemic change and promote sustainability. By advocating for Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), we're pushing for industry-led initiatives to reduce plastic waste and improve recycling systems. Our commitment extends to supporting a global treaty on plastic pollution, urging governments to enact legally binding regulations for a more sustainable future.
At the heart of our efforts is the belief that businesses and governments must work together to tackle plastic pollution comprehensively. Through partnerships with organizations like the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), they’re advocating for bold action at the international level to address plastic waste at its source. By signing initiatives like The New Plastics Economy Global Commitment and joining coalitions such as the Consumer Goods Forum Plastic Waste Coalition of Action, they’re driving progress towards a circular economy for plastics.
However, significant challenges remain, including limited waste infrastructure and regulatory barriers to using recycled plastic. To overcome these obstacles, they’re investing in initiatives like The Ocean Fund to support waste management and recycling infrastructure in regions heavily affected by plastic pollution. Together with other industry leaders, they’re committed to investing in solutions that promote a circular economy for plastics and eliminate unnecessary plastic waste by 2025.
Unilever's vision for a circular plastic economy underscores their dedication to sustainability and environmental stewardship. By advocating for systemic change, promoting responsible production and consumption, and investing in innovative solutions, they’re striving to build a future where plastics are reused, recycled, or composted, keeping them out of the environment and in the economy where they belong.
