ConsultantSeas carried out the technical consultation between the signatories
of the National Pact on Plastic Packaging published on February 21, 2019.
If plastic packaging today represents ⅓ of the plastic produced, it counts for 60% of the plastic found in the environment and particularly in the ocean. In 2019, in light of this observation, companies and NGOs joined forces with the Ministry of Ecological Transition in order to collectively rethink plastic usage. It is the birth of the “National Pact on Plastic Packaging”. The 16 historic signatories of the pact are Carrefour, Groupe Casino, Auchan Retail, Enseigne Coopérative U, Danone, Nestlé, L’Oréal, Unilever, Biscuits Bouvard, Coca Cola, Monoprix, Franprix, LSDH, MTE, WWF, Tara Océan Foundation.
ConsultantSeas remains the Founding Partner of the Pact, and may be mandated by the signatories of the Pact and/or by its coordinator to provide plastic expertise in support of some of the Pact’s work.
“The pact signed today is a major step in the fight against plastic pollution. This convergence of observations, discourse and actions is unprecedented in France and unique in Europe. We are disrupting practices and changing models, and this is the purpose of our action in favour of the circular economy. All stakeholders understand that it is more than ever time for them to really invest in the issue, otherwise we will move from incentives to sanctions.”
