About us

Tackling the entire system

WRAP was established as a not-for-profit company in 2000; we became a charity in 2014.

We promote and encourage sustainable resource use through product design, waste minimisation, re-use, recycling and reprocessing of waste materials.

We work across six continents with governments, businesses and citizens to create a world where resources are sourced and used sustainably.

Our values are what makes us: Sustainability, Honesty, Integrity, Fairness, and Teamwork.

Tackling the most wasteful

Our evidence inspires action in the areas creating the most waste. We bring together the right people from business, governments and communities. Together we come up with practical solutions that make a real difference.
By focusing on food and drink, plastic packaging, clothing and textiles, and collections and reprocessing our impact spans the entire life-cycle of the food we eat, the clothes we wear and the products we buy, from production to consumption and beyond.

Tackling a single part of an issue can just move the problem elsewhere.

We take a holistic approach, consider the whole system and create solutions that work together.
