Mexico Plastics Pact
WRAP, in collaboration with WWF, has been in consultation with businesses, government, trade associations and NGOs in Mexico since 2022 to collaboratively design and develop a Plastics Pact which will bring Mexico into the Global Plastics Pact Network, the third Latin American country to join.
