The Role of Innovation in Changing Behavior Towards a Circular Economy

Watch the archived webinar [registration required to view].

By 2030 plastic waste is expected to increase by more than 50% to 330 million tons per annum if business continues as usual. Not only is this unsustainable for communities and the environment, it also makes little sense economically. Recent figures show $120 billion is lost each year because plastic waste is mismanaged. This hour-long webinar will explore how innovation and new business models can help transform the relationship between people and waste, redefining value and driving a circular economy. 

Topics include: 

  • The business and environmental case for shifting from a linear to a circular economy for plastics
  • Opportunities to leverage innovation, beyond new technologies and materials to affect behavior change 
  • Exciting new solutions to tackling plastic waste leakage
