GPCA and its members fully support and advocate for a plastics circular economy in the GCC and globally. Through its annual conferences, advocacy efforts and participation in global initiatives, GPCA engages with the value chain network to facilitate effective collaboration and stimulate innovation in the creation of a circular economy in the region. The circular economy envisions that plastic does not leak into any natural streams whether land or water, but is rather collected for reuse, recycling or energy recovery, an idea that the industry fully supports through its efforts to increase the circularity of its products.
