In this 45 minute session, we will explore how you can take action to reduce your company's plastic waste footprint.
A new market of Plastic Credits is evolving, offering companies innovative ways to finance waste collection efforts and recycling infrastructure in the regions of their Plastic Footprint.
The speakers of this session will share how Plastic Credits work, why it is not a typical compensation tool, and how climate strategies can benefit from financing a circular economy infrastructure for your value chain.
