Canadian Plastics: Fifteen new partners join Canada Plastics Pact
by Canadian Plastics
The CPP now has 81 partners, and has doubled in size since it launched in January 2021.
On the heels of issuing its shared action plan in October, the Canada Plastics Pact (CPP), a multi-stakeholder, industry-led, cross-value chain collaboration platform created early this year to tackle the nation’s plastic waste and pollution problem, has added 15 new partners.
The new partners include consumer goods organizations, provincial and municipal governments, resin producers, recyclers, a bio-based plastics startup, one of Canada’s largest waste management companies, a new non-profit producer responsibility organization, and non-profit organizations from across the country.
Among these are materials supplier Nova Chemicals Corp. and cleantech company Enerkem, which are joining as the two inaugural “Knowledge Partners”, tasked with providing professional, technical and commercial systems knowledge that CPP officials say is “critical” to achieving its targets.
