In an effort to combat the impacts of plastics in oceans and the environment, relevant stakeholders will meet to discuss solutions tomorrow.
The 11th Global Plasticity Conference which will be held in Suva aims to introduce practical sustainability concepts that are relevant to today’s business world.
The conference will showcase new market opportunities for transforming plastic waste into valuable second-life resources.
Commonwealth Clean Oceans Alliance Special representative, Stephen Harris says plasticity is a global forum for practical, progressive thinkers who are excited about the future of plastic and the planet.
“The plasticity conference starts from the point of view that plastic in itself is not a bad thing. We very much depend on plastic as part of our modern lifestyle. The damage is caused by the sort of indiscriminate treatment of plastic – not seeing its value and plastic is, after all, a product of oil and oil is valuable. Business solutions are really trying to find a way of retaining that value through reuse and redesign so that it is able to be kept in circulation as long as possible.”
The conference will include local and international speakers, panels, networking opportunities and lots of ideas.
The one-day initiative focuses on inspiring business collaboration and creating circular economies for the planet, people and profit.
