Creating a circular economy is an essential sustainability target for governments, brands, suppliers, and the public. A key driver is the risks that plastic consumption, which is expected to double globally by 2050, poses to the environment; not only is plastic waste overflowing in landfills, but a significant portion is mismanaged and leaks into the environment.
Addressing plastic waste pollution requires solutions from every sector, but an especially important industry is the packaging sector, which utilizes about one-third of annual plastics production. Packaging, especially for fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), utilizes high amounts of single-use plastics that quickly end up in waste streams. Therefore, sustainable packaging is a critical component needed to advance circularity.
