Albéa commits to support a circular economy for plastics

Albéa joins the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment launched by Ellen MacArthur Foundation, along with several of its customers and partners, to create a circular economy for plastics.

Over the past four years, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation has been rallying businesses and governments behind the positive vision of a circular economy for plastics. The Foundation and United Nations Environment now aim to take this momentum to the next level by launching the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment.

Since 2002 sustainability has been at the heart of Albéa’s business strategy - inventing packaging with lower environmental footprint through use of Life-Cycle Analysis software, eco-design guidelines, plastic weight reduction, development of recyclable packaging, use of post-consumer recycled and bio-based plastics as well as partnerships with recycling industries and associations.

By joining the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, Albéa commits to:

- Making 100% of plastic packaging reusable or recyclable, by 2025.
- Setting an ambitious 2025 recycled content target of 10% across all plastic packaging used.
- Taking action to eliminate problematic or unnecessary plastic packaging by 2025.
- Taking action to move towards reuse models where relevant by 2025.

The challenge today is to develop an efficient circular economy in the beauty and personal care sector. We are working with our ecosystem to rethink the value chain to include collection, sorting and recycling at the end of our products’ long and happy life”, explains François Luscan, President and CEO.

Following the interesting November report from Aust & Hachmann (Vanilla Market Update - November 2018), we would like to emphasize a few points which - to our opinion- are quite questionable. The report is very optimistic, and we all hope that the unusual crisis on the vanilla market comes to an end as the current situation (...)
