Advancing a Circular Economy

As the world continues to shift from operating in a linear economy to a circular economy*, Avient is proud to be a part of the solution. A circular economy aims to design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems.

Through our design expertise and material science, we help our customers reduce material usage, enable recyclability or recycle content, and improve physical performance. In alignment with our customers, we set a 2030 sustainability goal to enable 100% of our materials for the packaging market to be recyclable, reusable, or compostable.
