We live in a time of great uncertainty, complexity, and unprecedented systemic challenges. Addressing complex sustainability challenges requires unprecedented collaboration and new ways of working across sectors and across scales.

We have a long track record of working with organizations to help them become sustainability leaders. Our effort to support the emergence of role model organizations that can inspire others is a key part of our mission.

The Canada Plastics Pact (CPP) is creating a circular economy in Canada in which plastic waste is kept in the economy and out of the environment. Canada Plastics Pact Partners are united, working together on achieving clear, actionable targets by the year 2025.

CANADA NEEDS A NATIONALLY COORDINATED STRATEGY TO ACHIEVE THE BENEFITS OF A GLOBALLY COMPETITIVE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

By David Hughes and Paul Shorthouse

Canada will be hosting the World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF2021) this week, culminating over three years of effort by the federal government, Sitra, Circular Economy Leadership Canada, and several partners who have been keen to see this important global event come for the first time to North America. It will be attended by over 8,000 online delegates, including senior representatives from industry, governments, investors, NGOs, and the public from over 130 countries.

CANADA PLASTICS PACT LAUNCHES TO TACKLE PLASTICS POLLUTION WITH INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS

Leading businesses, NGOs, and government unite behind 2025 targets to make packaging waste a thing of the past

"All around the world and here in Canada leading organizations are making great strides to reduce plastic waste at all stages of their operations. Unfortunately the actions of any one organization alone won’t be enough to meet the expectations and requirements of a society and a planet that demands bolder and faster action. The Natural Step Canada is therefore proud to be joining forces with a diverse group of leaders from business, government and civil society to launch the Canada Plastics Pact. Together we will innovate and implement scalable end-to-end solutions that will keep plastics in the economy but out of the environment.
