Driving Systems Change for a Circular Plastic Economy

Plastic pollution remains a colossal challenge that demands a collective response. At Unilever, we're committed to driving systemic change towards a circular economy for plastics. This entails transforming the linear model of 'take, make, dispose' into one that safeguards the environment and conserves resources while accommodating a growing population.
One key aspect of our advocacy involves promoting Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) schemes. These schemes incentivize companies like ours to minimize plastic packaging use and prioritize better design choices. By assuming responsibility for managing packaging waste, we aim to enhance recycling systems and ensure accountability throughout the value chain.
Our efforts extend beyond individual actions; we advocate for global action and well-designed regulations, such as a legally binding UN treaty on plastic pollution. Through collaboration with suppliers, governments, and partners, we seek to create an enabling environment conducive to a circular economy, driving positive environmental outcomes and sustainable business growth.
Partnering with organizations like the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the World Wildlife Fund, we advocate for ambitious and legally binding global rules to end plastic pollution. Our involvement in initiatives like the Business Coalition for a Global Plastics Treaty underscores our commitment to scaling up interventions and fostering cross-border collaboration.
Furthermore, we invest in infrastructure and behavior change initiatives to support a circular plastics economy. From signing global commitments to investing in waste management infrastructure in regions grappling with plastic pollution, we're dedicated to realizing our ambitious 2025 goals and working towards a future where plastics are safely and efficiently circulated within the economy, minimizing their impact on the environment.
Together with our partners and stakeholders, we're driving change at the scale and speed required to combat plastic pollution effectively. By advocating for systems change, investing in infrastructure, and promoting responsible consumption and production practices, we're striving to create a world where plastics never become waste or pollution.
