Thailand Public Private Partnership for Plastic and Waste Management – PPP PlasticView the policy document
Key FindingsView the policy document
The PPP is a collaboration between the Plastic Industry Club and the Federation of Thai Industries, in partnership with the Thailand Business Council for Sustainable Development, organizations from the public and private sectors, and members of society. The primary drivers are political and environmental, the goals are to help government policies to achieve their plastics recycling target (100% within the year 2027) and address the growing environmental concern of plastic waste management (Plastics P. P. P., 2018). The PPP taskforce is in charge of implementing this policy by working with local communities and companies to implement the circular economy model for plastic management.
There was insufficient evidence available to complete the evaluation framework at the time of the assessment, although Wijarn Simachaya, the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment who chairs the partnership’s plastic waste management subcommittee, said that PPP has achieved its goals of phasing out plastic microbeads, OXO-degradable plastics and cap seals, which were deemed unnecessary, within this year (Achakulwisut, 2019). He also added that the PPP is on course to achieve its goal of having zero plastic waste by 2027 (Achakulwisut, 2019).
