Innovation Forum: How business can tackle plastic pollution

From: 16.10.2018 To: 17.10.2018 Share

Innovation Forum’s upcoming conference: ‘How business can tackle plastic pollution’ taking place in Amsterdam on 16th-17th October.

16th-17th October, Planetarium Kromwijkdreef 11 1108 JA Amsterdam 1108 JA Holland

This conference will take a pragmatic look at the latest developments in product design, recycling infrastructure and the innovations that can make the right plastics sustainable. Over the two days, we will equip business delegates with the guidance to develop and implement strategies for reducing plastic footprints.
The 2018 forum will be made up of case-studies, debates, working groups and in-depth Q&A’s. No PPT, no boring speeches. Instead we will robustly debate issues such as:
  • Myth-busting with consumers: How to help consumers understand the nuances of the plastics debate – and what your company is doing about it
  • Single use plastics: Practical solutions to the future of single use plastic
  • Collaboration, collaboration, collaboration… How can we overcome the barriers to collaboration, and ensure successful partnerships at scale
  • Circular business models: Will plastics hysteria be the kick the circular economy needs to succeed?
  • Government engagement: How can business talk to national, regional and municipal governments about joining up approaches?
  • Innovations in product design: Examples of successfully working with design, R&D and recyclers to make product design and plastics recycling effective
  • Unintended consequences: How business, NGOs, media and government can work together to prevent the unintended environmental consequences around removing plastics
  • Emerging legislation: In-depth guidance to what different governments are doing now, and what new laws will be put in place that will require change and action
