SC Johnson, parent company of SC Johnson Professional, has been recognized as a leader in the household and personal care industry in tackling the plastic waste crisis in the fifth-annual Global Commitment Progress Report.

Produced by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the UN Environment Programme, the annual report highlights a set of plastic packaging commitments of more than 1,000 businesses, governments, and other organizations with a focus on developing a circular economy for plastics. According to the report, SC Johnson demonstrated meaningful advancement in all three of the key commitments—virgin plastic reduction, percent of post-consumer recycled plastic, and percent of plastic packaging that is recyclable, reusable, or compostable.

“I’m grateful to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the UN Environment Programme for putting out this important annual report and keeping the plastic waste crisis in the spotlight. Even with our progress—and momentum across the industry—there is still more work to be done. And businesses can’t do it alone,” said Fisk Johnson, SC Johnson CEO. “It really takes all stakeholders in the entire plastic ecosystem —producers, retailers, consumers, recyclers, and government alike—working together collectively at scale if we are going to solve this issue of plastic waste. If we are going to make real progress, we need governments around the world to pass strong, practical plastic regulation. SC Johnson is going to continue to advocate for good regulation in the U.S. and elsewhere.”
