Will plastics hysteria be the kick the circular economy needs to succeed?

Clock icon 10:00 - 11:00
The role of plastics in the circular economy according to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation could lead to a disruptive economic, social and technological revolution. It is thought that some £500bn could be saved annually through the implementation of a circular economy, with plastics playing a large role in this.  

While a systemic shift in business models is a big undertaking, being ahead of the game is an opportunity for business to profit whilst improving operations. 
In this session, we will look at the route to a plastic circularly economy and hear from some industry leaders on topics such as recycling vs reduce and reuse and what the cost element of recycling vs virgin looks like.
