Pacte National sur les emballages plastiques (The French National Pact on Plastic Packaging), was launched in February 2019 by the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition, bringing together a dozen French companies and NGOs.
The French National Pact is in line with the French Circular Economy Roadmap and the European Strategy on Plastics.
Led by Causanova, it establishes a series of concrete commitments including:
Defining a list of packaging to be designated as problematic or unnecessary and establishing which measures should be taken to have them eliminated
Eco-designing packaging to make it reusable, recyclable or 100% compostable by 2025
Collectively reaching 60% of plastic packaging recycled by 2022
Incorporating an average of 30% recycled plastic into packaging by 2025
Leading awareness-raising and educational activities with the general public on the issues related to plastic pollution
