Biome joins the Sustainable Packaging Coalition
Biome Bioplastics has announced that it has become a member of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC). The initiative aims to bring stakeholders together to catalyse actionable improvements to packaging systems and shape packaging solutions that are good for the people and the planet.
Becoming an SPC member is part of Biome’s broader commitment to contribute to a net zero carbon economy. Earlier this year, the company was recognised by the United Nations’ Race to Zero campaign, which aims to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Sustainable packaging has become a global movement, with consumers demanding that brands step up and act to combat the global plastic waste problem. The urgency for action has also been recognised by a rising number of initiatives across the globe, such as the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Plastic Pact Network and the US Plastics Pact.
Sally Morley, Biome Bioplastics’ managing director, commented: ‘Retail and consumer brands need to make the switch to sustainable packaging alternatives today so they can gain a competitive edge and positive brand recognition from consumers. Joining the SPC underpins our commitment to empowering retail and consumer brands to shift to compostable packaging.’
