Parallel Session #6 - Taking responsibility – Business models and incentives for plastic neutrality

Date: Wednesday 25th November

Time: 1.30pm - 2.30pm ICT

This session will discuss the responsibility of businesses and producers to reduce their plastic footprints now. This includes discussion of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) schemes that leave no one behind, plastic neutrality and credit programs that can generate additional financial flows and involve communities, and other models that can mitigate fluctuating market prices for recyclables and help address challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Side Event - Circular economy in developing countries and the informal sector: how to ensure environmental, economic, and social impacts?

Date: Wednesday 25th November

Time: 4pm-5.30pm ICT / 10am-11.30am CET

New approaches are needed to meaningfully scale up waste collection and management to support the transition to a circular economy in developing countries.

This interactive session will explore new methods to increase transparency and accountability in impact reporting, while scaling up solutions to prevent plastic pollution. This includes discussions on the role of the informal sector in developing countries and how to integrate this sector into "formal" processes and into global waste management databases. We will also discuss the ways in which environmental, economic and social goals can be achieved through the reduction of plastic waste and how credible impacts can be measured and reported. We will also include discussions between the private sector and 3on-the-ground projects to explore how "beyond-value-chain investments" can accelerate the transition towards a circular economy
