A Brief Introduction

Recycling and circularity continue to be high priorities across the plastics supply chain, with many looking to stimulate national recycled polymer supply chains, on an international scale. Driven by the consumer looking for more sustainable products, and consequently the legislators, this is impacting the petrochemicals producers through to the big consumer brands across the Americas and forcing them to take a look at their product offering and assess their commitments to sustainability.

As the shift in focus from ‘shareholder’ to ‘stakeholder’ continues to grow, companies are looking for insights to help shape robust sustainability strategies for this region. Community is also key in building sustainability into the plastics supply chain – circularity is a ‘team sport’. The Plastics Recycling & Circularity Conference – Americas Edition will therefore offer attendees learning, examples and vision, as well as networking and collaboration opportunities from North, Central and South America.

"This recycling and sustainability virtual festival is a creative way to bring various plastics value chain stakeholders together to share and discuss new developments in recycling an to promote circular economy for plastics. Over the past few months I have seen that meaningful conversations and collaborations are needed for true change and lasting impact to happen. This virtual platform serves this purpose. It was a great opportunity to outline key projects and priorities in taking on the challenge of ending plastic waste in the environment."

"I found the virtual festival very useful for networking: the meeting feature, the handshake mechanism and the profile description made it very easy and efficient to meet the right people and only qualified 'prospects'. I must admit I found that way more efficient than what you normally get in a face-to-face conference with a lot of unqualified meetings and discussions and little opportunity to screen attendees before."
