Alliance to End Plastic Waste: teaming up for sustainability
Plastic waste is a huge global concern. But no single organisation can address it alone.
That’s why BASF co-founded the Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW) in January 2019.
AEPW brings 55 different companies together. They cover every aspect of plastics – from raw materials to manufacturing, from retail to waste management.
The members have committed to investing $1.5 billion before 2023 to help minimize and manage plastic waste, and keep it out of our environment.
AEPW focuses on four areas. One is infrastructure – how we collect and manage waste. Another is innovation - finding new ways to minimize waste and recycle or recover ‘end of life’ plastics.
The third focus of the AEPW is education – mobilizing action from governments, businesses and others. And the fourth is cleaning up areas where plastic waste is concentrated.
