The values of GREEN PLASTURGIE are:
- Reduce the environmental impact of its members;
- Find common solutions to sustain the plastic, bioplastic and composite industry in an eco-responsible manner;
- Participate in the activities of its members at national and / or European level;
- Encourage all manufacturers to eco-design;
- Make industry aware of the ecological and economic need to include an eco-responsible end-of-life for their plastic-bioplastic-composite products;
- Promote prevention of industrial waste, in particular the development of virtuous uses (recycling, biodegradability-compostability, sorting gesture, deposit …).
- Communicate with the public and political leaders / representatives in order to increase their awareness of the qualities of plastics-bioplastics-composites and of the actions taken by manufacturers to limit the environmental impact of their activities;
- Encourage the establishment of a real bio-waste sector in France and the establishment of centers that can sort non-recycled plastics;
- Inform manufacturers on technical, legislative and regulatory news concerning the treatment of plastic, bioplastic and composite materials.
- Support actions aimed at increasing the responsibility of the public in their use of waste in order to avoid litter, litter or poorly sorted waste “
GREEN PLASTURGIE will bring the skills and resources together of direct or indirect players in the plastic-bioplastic-composite industry, including manufacturers-producers, suppliers, resellers, recyclers, compounders, environmental associations, NGOs, etc. ..
GREEN PLASTURGIE, who is open to working with all the actors sharing its values, has chosen to join Plastalliance. This new Organization will be a strong voice to defend the circular economy, petro or bio-based plastics and composites.
In addition to the actions specific to each Organization, joint GREEN PLASTURGY / PLASTALLIANCE actions will be carried out from 2020.

Just a few remarks and questions:
- Does it come too late as the EU directive has been adopted already and the French law on Circular Economy has or will be adopted soon ?
- How will this new federation relate to the existing French Bioplastics federation (Club Bio-Plastiques)? Is the wheel being reinvented?
- How will the recycling and traditional plastics lobby connect with the Bioplastics lobby?
- Is it a double sided sword? More members, more resources, but lower common ground?
- Is it to replace any existing federation?
- And last but not least: Encourage industry …. but increase responsibility of the public?
