About the Canada Plastics Pact

The Canada Plastics Pact is focused on creating a circular economy in Canada in which plastic waste is kept in the economy and out of the environment.  “Roadmap to 2025: A shared action plan to build a circular economy for plastics packaging” is Canada’s first industry-wide action plan to address plastic waste and was developed through the collaboration and engagement of industry leaders. Brands, retailers, recyclers, resin producers, nonprofits, associations, and governments are united in their efforts towards a circular economy for plastic packaging and a zero-waste future by setting out a plan to drive tangible change by 2025.   The Roadmap outlines the steps necessary to achieve this vision and can be found here.  Learn more about the Canada Plastics Pact at https://plasticspact.ca
