INEOS Styrolution has joined the U.S. Plastics Pact in their support for collaborative, solution-driven initiatives intended to drive significant system change in the design, use, and reuse of plastics. The U.S. Plastic Pact unites cross-sector approaches, setting a national strategy, and creating scalable solutions to create a path forward toward a circular economy for plastics in the United States by 2025.
As part of the U.S. Plastics Pact, activators like INEOS Styrolution recognize that significant change is essential to realizing a circular economy for plastics. As such, the U.S. Plastics Pact is assembling more than 10 brands, retailers, NGOs, and government agencies across the plastics value chain to bring one voice to U.S. packaging. The members will employ coordinated initiatives and innovative solutions for rethinking products, packaging, and business models.
INEOS Styrolution has a strong vision for sustainability aimed at improving and increasing the recovery of post-consumer plastic waste and strengthening innovation for circularity. “We must be solution-focused. It is paramount that we see innovative advancements in sustainability and a circular economy of plastics brought into a global reality.” says Ricardo Cuetos, Vice President, INEOS Styrolution America LLC, Standard Products.
“Together, through the U.S. Plastics Pact, we will ignite system change to accelerate progress toward a circular economy,” says Emily Tipaldo, Executive Director of the U.S. Plastics Pact. “The U.S. Plastics Pact will mobilize system wide change through support for upstream innovation and a coordinated national strategy. This unified framework will enable members to fast-track progress toward our ambitious 2025 sustainability goals. Members’ full participation will be vital to reaching our shared goals.”
