Companies Form Packaging Recycling Organization for Vietnam

Nine consumer goods companies have formed the Packaging Recycling Organization Vietnam to help drive a more circular economy.

In an effort to help ensure packaging recycling is more accessible and sustainable across Vietnam, a group of nine consumer goods companies have formed a new recycling initiative called Packaging Recycling Organization Vietnam.

The initiative’s four major goals are to spread awareness on recycling and source separation, boost the packaging collection ecosystem, support processors’ recycling programs and partner with the government to recycle, Packaging Gateway reports. In addition, the group will partner with university research centers to explore recycling solutions for Vietnam.
