Industry Voice: How to transform the plastic value chain

In making the plastic industry sustainable, innovations in production and recycling often grab the headlines, but with investment in infrastructure too, there is a tremendous opportunity for turning plastic waste into a resource, as regulation, consumers and large corporates have woken up to the challenge. Transitioning to a circular model for plastic is not just nature-positive, it represents a USD 1.2 trillion global economic opportunity by 2040. A new plastics value chain is emerging. It includes novel plastic materials, new ways of using and re-using plastic, and improved collection, sorting and recycling capabilities.​​​​​​

In the second episode of LOIM's Planetary Boundaries webinar series Michael Urban, Chief Sustainability Strategist, talks to Victoire Carous, Co-lead PM of LOIM's Plastic Circularity Strategy and other guest speakers about the scalable solutions that will contribute to the global transition towards a lower carbon footprint circular economy for the plastic value chain.
