The Plastic Waste Problem and the Role of Institutional Investors

Wed, July 17, 2019



Plastic is one of the most-produced and most ubiquitous of manmade substances. According to UN Environment, more than 79 percent of all plastic products and packaging ends up in either landfills or the natural environment, including the open seas. Concerns over the rapid accumulation of plastic wastes has prompted a backlash from regulators and consumers around the world.

During this webinar, we will examine the plastics supply chain to reveal the various environmental and financial costs involved, from packaging and consumer products to waste management. We will discuss the companies that are best and worst positioned to deal with these developments. Lastly, we will hear from a leading institutional investor who is taking steps to address these problems with innovative solutions.
