The South African Plastics Pact (SA Plastics Pact) is a collaborative pre-competitive initiative that brings together key stakeholders from the local plastics value chain, including businesses, the South African government, Producer Responsibility Organisations (PROs), NGOs and other key players to tackle plastics waste and pollution at its source.

As the SA Plastics Pact, we aim to stimulate industry-led innovation, dialogue and collaboration to create new business models, generate job opportunities, and unlock barriers to move towards a circular economy for plastic, with improved economic, environmental and societal outcomes overall.

The SA Plastics Pact works towards the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy vision and an ambitious set of four 2025 targets to create a circular economy for plastics in South Africa.
