The plastics packaging problem and the way forward
Plastic is cheap, durable and versatile. But concerns around plastic´s impact on the planet are now driving an intense search for alternative solutions. From 2021 there will be a total ban in the EU, on the 10 single-use plastics most often found on Europe´s beaches and seas, in a bid to stop polluting the environment. What happens next and who is responsible? How could waste be turned into resource more effectively? How can business help drive the solution to the plastic packaging problem?
These issues will be discussed with business and environmental experts in a unique panel debate, moderated by Per-Stefan Gersbro.
