"No one country, company or community can solve the plastic waste challenge on

their own. The Alliance believes in the collaboration of governments through

public-private partnerships and long term commitment focused on acting locally

through projects that address a city's specific challenges," said Jacob Duer,

President and CEO, Alliance to End Plastic Waste. "We are excited to have CPCIF

as our partner and endeavour to make a meaningful and valuable contribution to

China's national effort to eliminate plastic waste from leaking into the environment."

 

"Advocating green development and promoting circular economy is one of the key

tasks of China's petroleum and chemical industry," said Li Shousheng, Chairman

of China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation. "We firmly believe that

since we invented plastic, we will also bound to find solutions to the plastic

waste problem. CPCIF is willing to give full play to its industry advantages,

work with stakeholders in the industry value chain and international partners,

such as the Alliance, who shares the same vision as CPCIF, to jointly and

effectively promote the plastic circular economy, improve and solve plastic

waste problems.

 

A joint Steering Committee will be set up under the partnership to formulate a

long-term strategic approach to achieve the following key objectives:

 

Bring together technical expertise, global investments and locally-led

solutions that will make a positive contribution to improving the management of

plastic waste in China

 

Identify and assess locally-relevant projects that can reduce and alleviate the

waste management and recycling crises that many cities and communities are facing

 

Engage, educate and promote sustainable practices in China on issues related to
