In this panel discussion, representatives of ACC/ICCA, global plastics manufacturers, product formulators, international waste firms, and communities working towards a plastic circular economy will help define the types and complexities of single-use plastics.

This will help define a global plastic footprint for a global brand, informing the types of actions and goals that best incentivize changes, as well as address the negative impacts of plastic waste in the environment.
