New Partnership focuses on driving local solutions to end plastic waste in the environment

The Alliance to End Plastic Waste (the Alliance) today announced a strategic partnership with China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation (CPCIF) to jointly promote the reduction and elimination of plastic waste in the natural environment in China. The new partnership will bring together the Alliance's 47 leading global member companies and the strengths of CPCIF to jointly formulate a strategic approach to identify and collaboratively implement local solutions in China to address the plastic waste challenge.

"No one country, company or community can solve the plastic waste challenge on their own. The Alliance believes in the collaboration of governments through public-private partnerships and long term commitment focused on acting locally through projects that address a city's specific challenges," said Jacob Duer, President and CEO, Alliance to End Plastic Waste. "We are excited to have CPCIF as our partner and endeavour to make a meaningful and valuable contribution to China's national effort to eliminate plastic waste from leaking into the environment."

"Advocating green development and promoting circular economy is one of the key tasks of China's petroleum and chemical industry," said Li Shousheng, Chairman of China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation. "We firmly believe that since we invented plastic, we will also bound to find solutions to the plastic waste problem. CPCIF is willing to give full play to its industry advantages, work with stakeholders in the industry value chain and international partners, such as the Alliance, who shares the same vision as CPCIF, to jointly and effectively promote the plastic circular economy, improve and solve plastic waste problems.

A joint Steering Committee will be set up under the partnership to formulate a long-term strategic approach to achieve the following key objectives:
  • Bring together technical expertise, global investments and locally-led solutions that will make a positive contribution to improving the management of plastic waste in China
  • Identify and assess locally-relevant projects that can reduce and alleviate the waste management and recycling crises that many cities and communities are facing
  • Engage, educate and promote sustainable practices in China on issues related to plastic waste management
In addition, the partnership will open up opportunities to prove and accelerate solutions that will unlock capital investments, which are necessary to tackle the plastic waste challenge in China.
