Focus Areas

Sustainable Change for a Brighter Future

Innovation has made plastic vital to modern life. Medical grade plastic for surgeries. Personal protective equipment for ourselves and our caregivers. Lightweight plastic in our electric cars. Energy saving insulation in our homes.

Advanced Recycling

Advanced recycling harnesses the power of innovation, science and technology to remake plastics… again and again.

Circular Economy

To help keep plastic out of our environment, we need to move from a “linear” economy to a “circular” economy.

Sustainable Infrastructure

As a key part of America’s critical manufacturing capacity, plastic makers play an integral role in rebuilding our nation’s ability to move people, energy, goods and water while simultaneously driving down greenhouse gas emissions.

Policy & Action

You can help build a circular economy for plastic, in which plastic is reused instead of discarded. Helping keep plastic out of our environment.

What We're Doing

Progress in Action

We’re helping build a circular economy for plastic. An economy in which plastic is reused instead of discarded. Keeping it in our economy and out of our environment.

We’re continuing to innovate, investing billions of dollars in next generation advanced recycling. This technology makes it possible for plastic to be made to be remade, recycled into high-quality raw materials that are reused to make new products. Again and again. Building a cleaner and more sustainable future.
