Plastic Circularity Strategy

Plastic Circularity Strategy

Turning plastic waste into a resource.

Today, we let plastic go to waste at the expense of the planet. Transitioning to a circular model for plastic is not just nature-positive, it represents a USD 1.2 trillion global economic opportunity by 2040.1

A circular model means changing how we produce, use and recycle plastic in order to greatly reduce plastic waste.

A new plastics value chain is emerging. It includes novel plastic materials, new ways of using and re-using plastic, and improved collection, sorting and recycling capabilities.

As regulators, consumers and corporates wake up to the plastic challenge, investment opportunities are arising from innovative solution-providers, while also enabling investors to generate impact from reducing plastic waste and greenhouse gas emissions.

It’s time to put plastic waste to work.
