Our Position on Problematic Materials

SPC’s mission is to bring together sustainable packaging stakeholders to catalyze actionable improvements to packaging systems and lend an authoritative voice on issues related to packaging sustainability.

SPC has engaged with the U.S. Plastics Pact since its inception as an activator and as a participant in multiple workstreams. The Problematic Materials workstream worked with Pact Activators to “take measures to eliminate 11 problematic and unnecessary resins, components, and formats by 2025 in order to accelerate progress toward a circular economy for plastic packaging in the United States”.
