Commitment: Work with industry and other organisations to support circular plastic economy models.
We’re partnering with groups like the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Plastic Bank and Conservation International. In 2019, SC Johnson became the tenth Global Partner of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. With Plastic Bank in 2018/19 we opened nine recycling centres in Indonesian communities, helping increase recycling infrastructure while also creating economic opportunities for local waste collectors.
Commitment: Continue to remove excess plastic from products.
We’ve been relentlessly focused on designing out unnecessary packaging. In 2018/19, we removed more than 1.7 million kilograms of plastic from our main packaging.
Commitment: Champion local recycling of plastic film.
We are continuing our efforts to make curbside recycling of flexible plastic film such as Ziploc® brand bags a reality in the United States, with a pilot coming soon.
