Turning the Tide on Plastics

The Conference Board Sustainability Watch is a monthly series of webcasts that offer insights from the latest research by The Conference Board Sustainability Center and experts and practitioners from some of the leading sustainable companies.

May 20, 2021 09:00 AM ET [09:00] (New York), 03:00 PM CET [15:00] (Brussels), 09:00 PM SGT [21:00] (Singapore)

Plastic presents a huge cost for the environment and human health. The entire infrastructure of waste collection, sorting, and the balance of different recycling routes requires rethinking, redesign, innovation, and a significant volume of investments. In this webcast, Yvonne van Veen, Marketing and Innovation Strategy Director at INEOS, Dr. Jan Sültemeyer, Global Head of Innovation & Sustainability at Avient Switzerland GmbH, and Dr. Ina Vollmer, Post-Doctoral Fellow at Utrecht University join The Conference Board’s Global Sustainability Center Leader, Dr. Uwe G. Schulte for an interactive discussion on the new business opportunities to be taken advantage of in this space, as well as the major changes in plastic waste management that we will see in this coming decade.

As an attendee of this webcast, you will:

  • Learn about the current state of plastic waste management
  • Develop an understanding of key plastic waste management pathways organizations can take
  • Gain insights into emerging solutions to increase recycling of plastic
