Defining, Setting and Achieving Plastic Neutrality Targets
Making commitments around reducing the use of plastics and tackling plastic waste is trending. A number of companies are setting ‘plastic neutrality’ targets in particular. While this level of ambition is of course commendable, welcome and necessary, a number of important relevant questions remain difficult to answer for many – e.g., What exactly does it mean for a company, a product or a service to be plastic neutral? Are all types of plastics created equal and, if not, how does one go about documenting and ranking their relative impacts on the environment? What best practices are emerging around defining scopes of action and influence to go with plastic neutrality targets?
This panel aims to bring as many answers as possible, while also summarizing existing gaps in research, data or practice with refreshing clarity. Whether your company is thinking of setting plastic targets or is already on its way, you will find a variety of practical insight and analysis on offer in this conversation.
