Creating a world where resources are used sustainably
WRAP was established as a not-for-profit company in 2000; we became a charity in 2014. We work across six continents to help meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 12.3 and 12.5.
We are headquartered in the UK, with our main office in Oxfordshire, and sites in Cardiff and Belfast the respective capitals of Wales and Northern Ireland.
We have a unique convening power which means we can work with governments to set policy and with businesses to propose solutions to prevent waste and improve their productivity.
