Collaboration on plastics recycling

collaboration on plastic recycling

Unilever and Veolia have signed an agreement to work jointly on technologies that will help create a circular economy on plastics across various geographies, starting in India and Indonesia[2].

The companies acknowledge that the issue of plastic waste is a shared responsibility that requires bold action across the value chain to develop and scale up collection and reprocessing infrastructure, which is critical in the transition towards a circular economy.

The work will focus on material collection, which will help channel recycled content back into the value chain. To help create an end market for recycled plastic, Unilever has committed to increase the recycled plastic content in its packaging to at least 25% by 2025. Veolia will work with Unilever to implement used packaging collection solutions, add recycling capacity and develop new processes and business models through this partnership in various countries.
