This section features the pledges collected under the European Strategy for Plastics in the Circular Economy.
In January 2018, the European Commission invited stakeholders to submit voluntary pledges touse or produce recycled plastics. The target is that 10 million tonnes of recycled plastics find their way into products in the EU by 2025.
By end 2018, companies and business organisations, including those representing the full supply chains for major plastic materials currently in use in Europe such as POs, PET, PVC and EPS, have submitted 70 pledges.
The Commission has launched in December 2018 the Circular Plastics Alliance to promote further voluntary actions and commitments for more recycled plastics and reach the 10 million tonnes target.
