In 2020, the global plastics market generated roughly USD 580 billion in revenues with more than a third of that total coming from sales into the packaging market. While consumer packaging applications account for the largest segment, plastics touch virtually every sector of the global economy. Industrialization of plastic products has improved food safety and enabled advances in health care, but the risks to this value chain are building as consumers and regulators are increasingly focused on the build-up of plastic waste plaguing our planet.
This Tuesday, September 14th, from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon EST, please join keynote speaker Gregory J. Fleming, President & CEO, Rockefeller Capital Management for ESG and the Global Plastics Supply Chain: Uncovering Risks and Opportunities in a Changing World.
