RCBC is a partner in the Canada Plastics Pact.  CPP is a unique multi-stakeholder, industry-led, cross-value chain collaboration platform which aims to tackle plastic packaging waste and pollution by bringing together businesses, government, non-governmental organizations and other key actors in the local plastics value chain. The goal is is to create a circular economy in which plastic waste is kept in the economy and out of the environment.
