White paper: Summary of the global plastics industry
The move towards a “Circular Economy” will change the way that plastics are used and, more importantly, disposed of. The plastics industry will increasingly be called upon to justify the use of its materials. However, the benefits of plastics – particularly their lightweight and low cost – will mean they will continue to play a key role in targeting carbon emissions and reducing the longer-term impact of climate change. This white paper will provide an overview of these new challenges and opportunities and how companies can adapt to them.
