Retail chains

Many supermarket and retail chains and product manufacturers have signed the UK Plastic Pact. Together the 68 members are responsible for 80% of plastic packaging sold in UK supermarkets, and half of all packaging placed on the market.

The UK Plastics Pact is the world’s first programme to tackle the issue of plastic waste through collaboration across the entire supply chain. 

It aims to inspire members and supporters to act, and to galvanise wider action by governments, funders, investors, NGOs and businesses who are not members of The UK Plastics Pact.


The UK Plastics Pact - targets by 2025:

  1. Eliminate problematic or unnecessary single-use packaging through redesign, innovation or alternative (reuse) delivery model
  2. 100% of plastics packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable
  3. 70% of plastics packaging effectively recycled or composted
  4. 30% average recycled content across all plastic packaging


Local branches of retail chains are invited to sign the Plastic Free Community pledge.
