Plastics

Plastic and rubber are an integral part of our society. The large-scale use of plastics puts pressure on the environment caused by use of raw materials and energy. The spread of plastic litter and microplastics on land and in the sea results in a growing pollution of ecosystems. Circular Economy strategies have the potential to offer solutions to these challenges: reduce waste, lower carbon emissions and close the material cycle. Read our publication A circular economy for Plastics: Let’s turn challenges into opportunities. Find relevant showcases, events and news below.
