WASHINGTON, July 2, 2020 – The Sustainable Food Policy Alliance (SFPA), including members Danone North America, Mars, Incorporated, Nestlé USA, and Unilever United States, developed a set of Packaging & Recycling Priorities that showcase our commitment to improving access to recycling, transforming waste management to a circular system and establishing consistent standards and enhancing measurement across the recycling ecosystem. These policy priorities reflect how an improved recycling system along with packaging innovation is essential to reducing our carbon footprint and reaching our climate goals.
SFPA member companies have made a range of ambitious commitments on packaging and recycling. To-date they have invested in improvements to recycling systems around the world, innovations in packaging design and collaborations with suppliers, local communities and retail customers. However, we recognize that here is no single solution to packaging waste, and it is essential that stakeholders – including companies, recycling operators and federal and local governments – come together to make end-to-end system changes that will truly transform our waste management system into a circular economy.
