CIRCULAR ECONOMY

ABOUT THE REPORT

Amcor, among the top five largest packaging companies in the world by revenue, is mostly involved in flexible and rigid plastic packaging for the food and beverage sector. In 2016, it had a revenue of USD 9.4 billion, 68% of which came from flexible packaging. We were commissioned by them to analyse the challenges and opportunities for collection and circularity of post-consumer flexible packaging in Asia. The report:

  • details waste collection and management chain in three main markets, India, Indonesia and the Philippines
  • presents 12 collection initiatives across the three countries to identify key success factors and
  • delves into new processing technologies for post-consumer flexibles that will increase its applications and end uses

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“The report revealed that greater interventions are required to address increasing post-consumer flexible packaging waste in Asia… effort must include a multi-stakeholder approach including participation from local government, embrace source segregation, support material recovery facilities and, ensure a financially viable end solution” Packaging Business Review
