About the Pact
The India Plastics Pact is a collaboration between the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and WWF India. Within CII, the initiative is anchored at the CII-ITC Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Development (CESD). The initiative is supported by WRAP, a global NGO based in the UK. WRAP is providing operational and technical support to many other Plastics Pacts, as well as running the UK Plastics Pact.
