Getting ready for the plastic stewardship guidelines (Europe session)

When the guidelines for corporate plastic stewardship launch in 2021, will your company be ready?

Join the 3R Initiative, Quantis, EA and South Pole for an hour-long conversation on how you can prepare to hit the ground running upon the release of new plastic footprinting and waste reduction guidelines early next year.

  • Understand the milestones you’ll cross as you set out on your stewardship journey.
  • Anticipate questions you’ll hear and challenges you may encounter within your organization.
  • Learn how to build the case to the C-suite about the importance of this work, and earn their commitment to allocating resources that will help your organization make an impact with its plastic stewardship.

The Guidelines for Leadership in Corporate Plastic Accounting set out a vision for corporations to assess their plastic footprint and level of circularity, and identify mitigation actions within their value chain that will allow them to make credible, consistent and transparent plastic waste leadership claims.

We’ll introduce you to the three key pillars of the Guidelines and explain the benefits of creating a plastic stewardship strategy that aligns with them. The session will conclude with a 20-minute Q&A so you can ask the experts any questions you may have.
