Westlake Chemical Joins Global Alliance to End Plastic Waste

Westlake just joined the alliance, which launched in January to advance solutions to eliminate plastic waste.

Westlake Chemical Corporation announced it has joined the Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW), an organization launched in January 2019 to advance solutions to eliminate plastic waste in the environment, especially in the ocean.

“Westlake is pleased to have joined the Alliance to End Plastic Waste as part of our long-standing commitment to sustainability,” said Albert Chao, president and CEO of Westlake Chemical Corporation, in a statement. “With our core value of being a good corporate citizen, we are committed to being a leader in sustainable practices and a responsible environmental steward.”

Blending its chemical capabilities with a strong, downstream building products business, Westlake said it delivers products that benefit lives every day—from polyethylene that is used daily in food packaging, to vinyl pipe that is used to deliver clean drinking water and irrigate fields, to caustic soda that is used in pulp and paper manufacturing like carton boxes.
