Plastics floating in the ocean

Initiatives

UK and international collaboration

Our work in action

We are working with businesses across the plastics value chain here in the UK and globally through the Plastics Pact network, transforming how we make, use, collect, sort, reuse and recycle plastics to create a circular economy, capturing the value of plastic, keeping it in the economy and out of the natural environment.

Working with key partners internationally, our voluntary agreements are transforming whole systems uniting businesses, governments and citizens behind a shared vision and measurable targets for change.    

The UK Plastics Pact

Our throwaway culture has led to increasing levels of plastic waste in our natural environment. Taking action to rid us of this scourge requires concerted global and national level action. WRAP is leading this national level action in the UK through The UK Plastics Pact working with businesses towards four measurable targets for change by 2025.
