Behind the Curtain of Corporate Pre-Competitive Partnerships
This panel explores how major consumer brands are collaborating pre-competitively to support The Closed Loop Fund’s mission to tackle plastic waste by investing in recycling infrastructure. The expansion of collecting, sorting and processing infrastructure through CLF-funded projects across the country has made it easier for communities to recycle and has led to an increase in recycling participation. The Fund has committed nearly $25 million in 11 projects, an amount that was matched three-fold by co-investors such as Keurig, 3M, Coca-Cola, Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, Nestlé Waters North America, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, Unilever and the Walmart Foundation. Join this session to find out how this collaboration has succeeded thus far and what its future may hold.
