No single stakeholder in the ecosystem can address the challenges associated to the packaging life-cycle on its own. They, and therefore the solutions are not assigned to a specific stakeholder but to coordination and information gaps in the plastics ecosystem that must be solved by collective actions taken by the different parties involved.

The so-called “Regulation-Inspection” logic makes less and less sense for it is difficult to find a precise formula for the regulation and even more complicated to have an effective inspection. Therefore, voluntary systems, in which the State also participates, seem to make sense for addressing these complex challenges in order to converge to regulatory schemes (which should exist) in a more sensible.

The current linear model of packaging use must change. Ninety-five percent of the value of packaging is lost after its first and single use, generating both negative environmental impacts and loss of economic value associated to the material itself.



Degradation of natural systems

caused by the leakage of plastics into different ecosystems and especially into the oceans.

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission

related to the production process and incineration of containers and packaging.

Negative impacts

on health and environment caused by the leakage of hazardous substances.


Challenges in Chile


Redesign containers and packaging so that we eliminate those problematic and unnecessary plastics that cannot be reused, recycled or composted.


Implement models and technologies for collection, separation and recovery that face the geographic challenges of our country, and generate a greater demand for recycled material to encourage this entire chain.


Raise awareness and educate citizens to fulfill their role within the chain, delivering the material appropriately to collectors.


Collaborate and build social capital around a common vision of our country that paves the way for a convergence of more sensible and effective regulation.
