Greiner Packaging has announced that it has become an official member of the SIngapore-based international Alliance to End Plastic Waste.
The alliance, with over 50 member companies, supporters and allies across the entire plastics value chain aims to develop a joint and effective approach to tackle the problem of plastic waste, especially in cities around the globe. Its members pledge to develop and invest in effective waste management and related processes, and to integrate these into recycling systems, new technologies, and projects. These efforts are ultimately designed to make it possible to recover resources for a circular economy from plastic waste.
As a new member company of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, Greiner Packaging has committed to support the alliance with resources, expertise, and investment. The aims of the alliance mesh well with those of Greiner, a company that has already for some time been pursuing its own circular economy strategy.
“Greiner Packaging has been driving innovation in sustainable packaging through initiatives to design for recycling, reduce plastic use, and adopt alternative materials,” said Manfred Stanek, CEO of Greiner Packaging.
Jacob Duer, president and CEO of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, welcomed Greiner Packaging ‘into the fold’, noting that this addition ‘expands our global footprint and is set to bring us closer to our 2025 vision ‘.
