Amcor, Delterra, Mars and P&G form strategic partnership to tackle plastic waste & develop circular economy

Amcor, Delterra, Mars and P&G jointly announce the launch of a strategic partnership to stem the tide of plastic pollution in the Global South. These global leaders will work together to scale upstream and downstream solutions for a circular plastics economy, jointly committing $6 million USD over five years.

The announcement comes in the lead-up to the second negotiating committee meeting for a Global Plastics Treaty (INC-2), working to develop a globally binding instrument on plastic pollution.

The partners are coming together with a shared commitment to urgent environmental action and a shared understanding that the challenge of plastic pollution cannot be solved without a systemic and holistic approach to roll out scalable and sustainable programs to boost the transition to a circular economy. The strategic partners call on like-minded organizations to join this first group and add their support to drive real change, at scale.

Recognizing that plastic pollution is a symptom of the broader issue of underperforming or non-existent waste management and circularity solutions, the partnership is committed to investing in innovative programs along the full value chain:
*upstream, stemming plastic pollution at source by designing waste out of the system with Delterra’s global roll out of Plastic IQ, a digital tool that is changing the way companies understand and improve their plastic footprint
*downstream, working on the supply and demand side to capture recyclable and compostable materials and return them to productive use with Delterra’s Rethinking Recycling program
*while innovating material traceability solutions to provide transparency on matters such as source, quality and ethical concerns along the recycling value chain.

The partnership will focus on countries of the Global South, starting in Indonesia, Argentina and Brazil, and aim to provide easy access to waste management and recycling systems to 10 million people. The partners will explore new ways to drive true systems change and to innovate beyond each organization’s individual realm to positively impact the entire ecosystem.
