• North American Plastics Alliance Celebrates Five Years of Collaborative Advocacy for Plastics, Recycling and Product Stewardship
    Prior to 2011, the continent’s four leading plastics industry trade associations—SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association, the Plastics Division of the American Chemistry Council (ACC), the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) and the Asociación Nacional de Industrias del Plástico, AC (ANIPAC)—had no official forum where they could coordinate their efforts to enhance sustainability and support growth throughout the highly-interconnected North American plastics industry. NAPA changed that, and for the last five years has worked to move the entire plastics industry forward through coordinated advocacy, product stewardship programs and other efforts aimed at increasing plastics recycling and energy recovery throughout North America.
