Circular Economy

INEOS has joined with other leading businesses to transform today’s take, make, dispose economy into one where plastics are designed to be used over and over again – and, in doing so, retains their value and keeps them out of the ocean.

INEOS IS COMMITTED TO ACHIEVING A MORE CIRCULAR ECONOMY, WHERE MATERIALS ARE RE-USED AND RECYCLED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT POSSIBLE.

This saves resources, reduces GHG emissions and creates opportunities for our customers and our businesses. It maximises the valuable contribution that plastics make to society whilst minimizing the draw on new resources and opportunities for waste to enter the environment.

We have already set four targets for 2025:

  1. Offer a range of polyolefin products for packaging applications containing at least 50% of recycled material.
  2. Use on average 30% of recycled material in polystyrene packaging products. 
  3. Incorporate at least 325 kt of recycled material in our products.
  4. Ensure that 100% of our polymer products can be recycled.

We are also working with and supporting industry groups to agree and set common industry targets.
