New Plastics Economy Global Commitment

The New Plastics Economy Global Commitment brings together businesses, governments, and other organisations to help realize the vision of a circular economy for plastics, in which it never becomes waste. Signatories of the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment are committed to eliminate unnecessary plastic packaging, move from single-use to reuse models, and use only plastic packaging that is reusable, recyclable, or compostable.

For the past few years, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF) has been rallying businesses and governments behind this positive vision of a circular economy for plastic. To help them achieve this goal, all business signatories are required to track and declare their plastic packaging data by submitting annual reports to the EMF.

Note

As a business signatory, you need to submit your report annually to the EMF, based on your own annual reporting cycle (flexible reporting year).

The Global Commitment Reporting Questionnaire available on EMF's online portal lists the information that you need to provide in the report. This includes information about your organization, details of reporting period and scope, volume and sourcing information about the plastic packaging used, and the reusability, recyclability, and compostability of plastic packaging used.

Ellen MacArthur Foundation NGO Report

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation NGO Report calculates the amount of plastic packaging generated by your company for a reporting year. It calculates how much is reusable, recyclable, or compostable and displays the sourcing information for the plastic packaging.

You can use this data to fill relevant sections in the Global Commitment Reporting Questionnaire on EMF's online portal.
