Coca-Cola and PepsiCo exit plastic lobbying group amid environmental concerns

Read the full story in Supply Chain Dive.

In response to pressure from public and environmental groups, both Coca-Cola and PepsiCo announced they are withdrawing from the Plastic Industry Association this year, reported CNBC.

Both companies cited disagreements with the policy and advocacy work of the trade association, but would not elaborate on the policies with which they disagree.

Exiting the association aligns with the companies’ sustainability policies. Coca-Cola aims to have its packaging recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025, while PepsiCo is working to have its products be recyclable, compostable or biodegradable by the same year.
