GRACE – Global Recycling Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment
GRACE focuses on advocacy and communication related to packaging sustainability and a net zero-carbon emissions circular economy. It promotes the environmental benefits of beverage cartons, advocates for effective public policies and regulation and supports measures to significantly increase beverage carton recycling.
GRACE will start operating from the Brussels-based European beverage carton association ACE (Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment), which is dedicated to advocacy and communication and from EXTR:ACT, the industry’s platform dedicated to supporting collection and recycling in Europe. The founding members of ACE, EXTR:ACT and GRACE are Elopak, SIG Combibloc, Tetra Pak, BillerudKorsnäs and Stora Enso. GRACE will liaise with existing associations representing beverage cartons in different regions of the world and will support the industry alignment on subjects of common interest. The medium-term objective is to expand GRACE’s activities and membership to collaborate with other value chain partners sharing similar interests.
The GRACE Recycling Manager will coordinate and support activities on recycling in liaison with the GRACE members. She/he will compile information on recycling globally and liaise with relevant national or regional industry platforms. She/he will monitor progress of collection and recycling against agreed objectives/targets.
The Recycling Manager will be employed by ACE and shall report to the GRACE Coordination Committee representing the founding member companies of GRACE for strategic and content-related decisions.
