UK packaging company Amcor has enhanced its sustainability commitment towards removal of plastic waste from the environment by joining World Wildlife Fund-led activation hub.

ReSource: Plastic was launched last year by a global consortium of companies and organisations.

The consortium supports large-scale plastic commitments made by organisations and aims to remove at least 50 million metric tonnes of plastic waste by 2030.

Amcor joined ReSource alongside Colgate-Palmolive and Kimberly-Clark.

Amcor CEO Ron Delia said: “Amcor is leading the way on packaging innovation, but new products and technologies alone won’t be enough to meet our sustainability ambitions and to solve the global waste issue.

“Keeping waste out of the environment will require not only the right package design but also efficient collection and waste management along with active consumer participation.

In addition to joining the organisation, Amcor collaborates with industry partners, governments, and non-governmental organisations to enhance collection, recycling and recovery of plastic packaging.

It also partnered with Ocean Conservancy and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy initiative.

The company pledged to make all its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.

In February this year, Amcor launched a new 100% post-consumer recycled content (PCR) resin-based polyethene terephthalate (PET) container.

The company’s facility also continues to operate amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Amcor operates about 250 locations in more than 40 countries.
