Reporting on plastics footprint: bottlenecks in measurement & disclosure

Plastics have triggered public and regulatory attention to stop plastic leakage in the environment and improve circularity. In this context, more and more companies are taking plastic commitments (EMF) and are becoming increasingly accountable for reporting on their plastic footprint and mitigation strategies. This session will open a discussion on why and how circular plastics should be measured and reported as part of ESG factors.
