webinar VIDEO RECORDING: RETHINKING PLASTIC RECYCLING IN A DISPOSABLE SOCIETY
The global production and use of plastics are expected to increase fourfold to 2050 and if the material is poorly managed at the end-of-life, this will potentially result in significantly increased impacts on the environment, especially through marine plastic litter.
On 23 January 2019, Peter Börkey, of the OECD Environment Directorate, addressed this pressing issue and the policy responses that are required to tackle it. The presentation was based on the OECD report Improving Markets for Recycled Plastics: Trends, Prospects and Policy Responses.
