SPI works to protect the plastics industry whenever legislation, regulations and public policy matters are being debated that could impact plastics’ bottom line. From international trade agencies to Capitol Hill and state capitols across the country, SPI is there to ensure that policymakers hear the industry’s voice.

Through its Advocacy Action Center, SPI provides a grassroots network to rally the more than nearly 900 thousand plastics workers nationwide.

SPI has developed five scorecards covering legislative and regulatory activities at the federal, state, and international levels that help keep members informed on key issues impacting the plastics industry.



SPI’s Government Relations team conducts a comprehensive public policy program designed to preserve or enhance a positive legislative and regulatory climate for the entire plastics industry. But in order to truly empower the industry’s impact, we need your involvement on a grassroots level.
