Berry Global Group, Inc. recently announced that Tom Salmon, chairman and CEO, has accepted the appointment as an officer of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste. As a founding member and first converter to join the alliance, Berry reports that this continues its leadership role to help convene a global network of over 80 member companies and partners in the mission to end plastic waste in the environment.

Salmon reportedly continues to stand behind the power of plastics. Through his leadership, he will help guide the alliance’s decision-making on global projects that are sustainable, circular, and scalable businesses.

“The selection of representatives across the sectors signifies the necessary collaboration across the plastics value chain,” said Salmon. “Ending plastic waste is only achievable when organizations partner to increase infrastructure, educate, and provide circular solutions to give plastic multiple lives.”

“Tom has been a clear voice on how the plastics value chain can transform to become more sustainable and circular, which are essential shifts if we are to tackle the challenge of plastic waste holistically,” said Jacob Duer, president and CEO of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste. “I look forward to the work we can accomplish together to advance a circular economy for plastic waste.”
