Plastics and Sustainability Seminar Featuring Speaker From DEFRA

The British Plastics Federation has launched a new seminar focused on sustainability that will investigate how plastics companies can promote sustainability within their own organisations as well as to the wider public.

Speakers from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Suez Environmental and Ricoh, amongst others, will give presentations on topics including the role of plastics in a sustainable economy, maximising recycling within manufacturing facilities, how to achieve sustainable development goals and the issue of marine litter.

Dr Jason Leadbitter, Chairman of the BPF Sustainability Committee, states:

“Everyone in the plastics industry wants to help leave the environment in a better state for future generations. As an industry we are committed to working with Government, local authorities, retailers and consumers to tackle this issue.

This timely inaugural seminar will look at plastics through the lens of sustainability, showing companies how they can play a leading role in making a real difference in tackling unnecessary plastic waste, as well as preparing for the future as the industry continues to evolve.”

The BPF Sustainability Seminar will take place at the BPF offices in London on 12 June 2018.

Full details of the seminar are available on the BPF website.
