Moving into a new decade, historical assumptions regarding plastics growth and its role in society are changing, while the global industry expands and adapts to the COVID-19 pandemic. Advancement towards a circular economy and sustainability is a top priority for organizations in the plastics industry. Increased geopolitical awareness, emphasis on corporate social responsibility and attention towards environmental concerns has created significant challenges and opportunities for plastics across the globe. How will the industry respond and can the industry adapt to forces that are reshaping the role of plastics in society?
At the 8th Global Plastics Summit Online hosted by IHS Markit and the Plastics Industry Association, attendees can expect to hear from today’s major chemical companies as they outline strategies and innovations being used to tackle the issues of plastics waste and building a more sustainable future. Due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, this event will be held as an innovative virtual program with pre-recorded talks, live panel sessions and virtual Q&A.
