The plastics industry is a responsible partner to policy-makers and other stakeholders, working together to find solutions to the challenges of climate change, energy and resource efficiency, consumer protection and the circular economy. Plastic materials are ideally suited to be essential components of the solutions to these challenges. To achieve this, PlasticsEurope works closely with all its stakeholders and the plastics value chain to develop a common plastics industry vision and approach. 

Plastic plays a major role in delivering and sustaining the quality, comfort and safety of modern life-styles. Its impressive ratio of cost to performance also means that people of all income groups can enjoy these benefits. But meeting the needs of society is not just about ''today''. Future generations also have the right to products that will benefit their everyday life. Meeting the needs of tomorrow is the foundation of the concept of ‘Sustainable Development’. Plastic products are already helping to improve people’s lives every day, whilst conserving natural resources and helping to protect the environment for tomorrow, in a world with a growing population, and ever-increasing demands for water, food, shelter, sanitation, energy, health services and economic security.
