Tackling the plastic crisis
Plastic waste, especially in oceans, is rising up the scale of global environmental concerns.
How can you and your organisation fight the plastics crisis and actively improve the plastic footprint?
South Pole is ambitious to turn the global plastic crisis into an opportunity to save millions of dollars, safeguard fragile ecosystems, and unleash innovation benefits along the corporate value chain. Currently, South Pole is investing in research and initiatives to find the best possible ways to implement smart, market-based solutions that can help effectively address plastic waste.
We look forward to interesting presentations and to discussing plastics-related topics from different perspectives with renowned speakers and participants from industry, science and NGOs.
Note: We are aware of the current situation regarding corona virus and are carefully tracking it. Should it not be possible to hold the Climate Leaders Forum in Zurich as usual, we will offer an online alternative.
