However, we are aware that the large-scale application of these materials comes with disadvantages attached. The use of primary fossil raw materials puts pressure on the environment. Valuable raw materials are lost with it because recycling percentages are not high enough yet and the spread of plastic litter and micro-plastics is a source of growing concern to everyone.

Plastic Pact NL is one of the Dutch government’s priorities within the framework of the Raw Materials Agreement and the Circular Economy Implementation Programme. This Plastic Pact focuses on closing the cycle of single-use plastic products and packaging. In addition to the Dutch government, participating parties include supermarkets, manufacturers of plastics and packaging, environmental organisations, recycling companies and many other organisations.

We have decided to join this initiative and to actively contribute to the realisation of the objectives formulated in the Plastic Pact. Similar initiatives have been launched or are currently being developed in other countries. The main objective of these programmes is to close the cycle of single-use plastic products and packaging.
