The UK has set ambitious targets and laid down new legislative frameworks to protect and enhance our environment for future generations. A key pillar of this will be how we transition to a circular economy.
In the last decade the recycling rate of aluminium packaging has increased by 30% to a record rate of 68% in 2020.
As an industry we continue to strive towards our target of a 100% recycling rate for aluminium packaging.
This goal is within reach, but not without fundamental change in our approach to packaging and waste management. Large proportions of packaging waste are still not recycled or managed sustainably. However, aluminium is infinitely recyclable and is perfect for a circular economy.
