The Un-plastic Collective
1. The Un-plastic Collective
The UN Environment (UNE) and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) are the proponents of The Un-plastic Collective (UPC). The Collective seeks to minimise externalities of plastics on the environmental, ecological, and social health of our planet. The word 'un-plastic' specifically alludes to moving of plastics in the circular economy and removing unnecessary plastic in the long run, which, in practical terms would imply the use of alternative materials.
The Un-plastic Collective builds on the outputs of a CEO Roundtable that was held on 30 May 2018, in Mumbai (in partnership with the Indian Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, and the Maharashtra State Government). The Roundtable was co-chaired by Mr Erik Solheim, then UNE Executive Director, and Mr Jamshyd Godrej, Past President, CII, and Chairman, Godrej & Boyce Ltd.
UPC complements other global initiatives such as the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment (Ellen MacArthur Foundation) and the Alliance to End Plastic Waste (Industry alliance) which seek to drive global action on managing plastic waste.
Minimise externalities of plastics.
