2.1Find This Chapter 02: A flurry of voluntary initiatives

Overview of company commitments

We analysed commitments for tackling plastic pollutions from Coca-Cola, Colgate-Palmolive, Danone, Mars Incorporated, Mondelēz International, Nestlé, PepsiCo, Perfetti van Melle, Procter & Gamble, and Unilever – namely, the ten most polluting companies, according to the 2018 and 2019 Break Free From Plastic Brand Audits.

Overall we found a lack of ambition across the board, with Mondelēz International, Perfetti van Melle and Procter & Gamble particular laggards. We are calling on all companies to up their ambition, and particularly their support for legislation (see Conclusions and Recommendations).
