Making progress together to reduce plastic waste

We developed the Repak Members’ Plastics Pledge initiative in September 2018, to deliver key actions outlined in our Plastic Packaging Recycling Strategy 2018-2030 and meet the challenges Ireland faces under new EU legislation.

In June 2020 we launched our second Plastic Pledge progress report, which highlights the continued proactive approach that our 115 member signatories have taken to reduce the use of plastic and improve its recyclability. In 2019 member signatories have, on average, reduced their plastic usage by 14.8% and diverted a total of 16,100 tonnes of plastic packaging waste from the Irish market, as well as using over 21,000 tonnes of recycled plastic in production.
