Addressing a challenge as complex as recovering post-consumer plastic packaging for recycling is not feasible for most individual companies, particularly when products are distributed throughout multiple regions and markets. Cost-effective solutions require collaboration with multiple stakeholders (including competitors), both upstream and downstream of the lubricant value chain. This coalition unites all entities that produce, handle, distribute, and recycle lubricants and plastic packaging to speak as a single voice for the industry, and to deliver results by creating systemic, collaborative solutions for post-consumer recovery and recycling.
