While many companies see the circular economy as a call to manage waste and materials within their own operations, there are opportunities to take a collaborative approach to help capture waste that would otherwise not be and create (circular) economies of scale. NextWave Plastics member companies are willing to embrace imperfect practices and walk through change outside their comfort zones - together.
Panelists will discuss the practicalities and benefits of collaborating with both market competitors and cross-industry thought leaders to develop ocean-bound plastics supply chains and drive innovation in essential packaging applications. Following the discussion, we will welcome to the stage other companies (to be confirmed) who are working to reinvent their packaging for an expanded audience Q&A on dealing with the challenges and surprises of striving for circular packaging strategies.
