Avery Dennison Corporation, the global manufacturer and distributor of pressure-sensitive adhesive materials, apparel branding labels and tags, has signed a three-year deal with Ocean Recovery Alliance, founders of the Plasticity Forum, as part of the Plasticity Partner Program.
“Avery Dennison has eight ambitious sustainability goals that we have committed to meet by 2025, and we know that to achieve them we need to work collaboratively within our industry and beyond,” said Roland Simon, vice president of global procurement and corporate sustainability at Avery Dennison. “Partnering with Plasticity enables us to work across our value chain to find systemic solutions to convert plastic waste into valuable second-life resources, which is a key priority for us.”
Plasticity is a forum for businesses to share problems and collaborate on solutions, and is unique as the only travelling global conference focused solely on creating circular plastic economies. Since its inaugural forum in 2012 at the Rio+20 Earth Summit, Plasticity has been hosted in Hong Kong, New York, Lisbon, Shanghai, London, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Sydney - and this year comes to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia on the 25th October.
Over a three-year period, Avery Dennison and Plasticity aim to collaborate across the industry to discover, connect and facilitate solutions to create innovative prevention programs for plastic pollution.
“At Plasticity, we look for practical and progressive thinkers to join our forum, to bring together new ways of thinking, technologies and creativity in order to introduce innovative projects and initiatives that will help improve our ocean environment,” said Doug Woodring, founder and managing director of Ocean Recovery Alliance. “We are delighted to have Avery Dennison join us as a partner, and we are confident that together we can create significant change.”
