Our Mission

The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) is a purpose-driven organization that supports the entire plastics supply chain.

We believe in working to make our members and the industry more globally competitive. We believe in advancing sustainability and being a good steward of resources. We believe in promoting plastics manufacturing as a viable career option.  

We provide education to the industry and to the public about plastics. We support technology-driven innovation to solve problems. We work to change the public’s perceptions about plastics and show how they impact our lives for the better. We understand what’s important to our members’ business and we advocate on their behalf to enact sustainable policies and create sustainable business growth for the industry.

Our councils, committees and events such as our signature global tradeshow NPE®, bring the boldest and brightest innovators, influencers and new technologies together to create connections, expand business growth and showcase our industry.  

From the technological advancements we enable to the possibilities we create, we’re dedicated to helping our members shape the future and make a positive impact every day.  

PLASTICS. Better Industry. Better World.
