WRAP initiated the Plastics Pact in Colombia by selecting CEMPRE as a coordinator and working with CEMPRE on the design and delivery of the platform.
WRAP has been providing financial, technical and strategic support to CEMPRE for the implementation of the Colombian Plastics Pact.
Who is signed up?
Currently the Colombian Plastics Pact has 10 business members from the whole value chain and nine supporters including trade associations, recycling associations, NGO, municipalities and academia.
The four targets of the Colombia Plastic Pact are:
- Eliminate 100% of problematic and unnecessary plastics.
- 100% of plastic packaging must be reusable, recyclable or compostable.
- 50% effective recycling rate of plastic packaging and containers.
- Ensure that new plastic containers and packaging contain 30% of recycled content.
