The plastic waste issue is currently one of the fastest growing environmental topics on the political agenda. Governments and consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the substantial impact of plastic on our environment and our health. For the first time, the EU has committed to a holistic plastics strategy, and similar agreements are being made internationally.
Given this momentum, GES believes it is essential for companies to take immediate action to prevent and mitigate the damage caused by plastic in society. Therefore, we have included the new theme on Plastics and the circular economy in our Stewardship & Risk programme and highly encourage the RI community to endorse it.
More information on the theme in the latest GES Stewardship & Risk Engagement brochure.
