Introduction to the Alliance to End Plastic Waste

The Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW) is a multi-sector plastic value chain industry formed organisation to address the challenges of plastic waste. It is a CEO led stand-alone not-for-profit organisation, currently with an Alliance membership of over 40 global international enterprises ranging from producers to specialists, and from brand-owners to waste/recycling management providers. Examples of such members include ExxonMobil, Shell, Total, BASF, Henkel, Tomra, Suez, Veolia, Sinopec, P&G and PepsiCo.

The talk will cover AEPW’s Vision and Mission, its strategy and program areas. With a total of US$ 1.5 billion committed by member companies over a period of 5 years, AEPW will invest (largely philanthropically) in initiatives to deliver its mission. Having just marked its first anniversary, the talk will outline some of the specific sponsored projects in AEPW’s portfolio.
