Major supermarket chains and multinational brands are among more than 60 organisations to sign up to a long-awaited pact to reduce plastic waste across Australia and the region.

They are pledging to reach four targets by 2025:

- making all plastic packaging reusable, recyclable or compostable
- increasing the amount of plastic packaging collected to 25 per cent
- increasing the amount of recycled content used to make packaging to 25 per cent
