Webinar: How to transform the plastic value chain?

7 December 2022 @ 09:00 - 10:00

Food for thought from the Lombard Odier Investment Managers’ (LOIM) Planetary Boundaries webinar series:

“The ecological cost of plastic waste is well understood, but what about the myriad of possibilities that it offers? 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.​​​​​​” (LOIM, 2022)

Register to hear what Michael Urban, Chief Sustainability Strategist at LOIM has to say how we can achieve a global, lower carbon footprint circular economy for plastics.
