THE FOCUS OF
THE COMMITMENT
IS THREEFOLD:

 

  • Eliminate problematic or unnecessary
    plastic packaging and move from single-use
    to reuse packaging models.
  • Innovate to ensure 100% of plastic packaging
    can be easily and safely reused, recycled,
    or composted by 2025.
  • Circulate the plastic produced, by significantly
    increasing the amounts of plastics reused
    or recycled and made into new packaging 
    or products.
