Plastics and plastic products are more than just convenient; they are essential to the way we live our modern lives. CIAC Plastics Division members are involved in every step of the plastic production process, from the production of resins and pellets to producing final products including personal protective equipment (PPE), packaging to protect food and reduce spoilage, automotive parts, computer and electronic casing, and components for solar panels and wind turbines. With the manufacture of these products comes the responsibility to make plastics in a sustainable way that limits or eliminates plastic waste and pollution while working toward a circular economy for plastics to support a low-carbon economy.
CIAC Plastics Division members are committed to:
100% of plastics packaging being recyclable or recoverable by 2030.
100% of plastics packaging being reused, recycled, or recovered by 2040.
