Plastics Recycling and the Circular Economy

September 28, 2022 | On-Demand Event

Recycling is a cornerstone of sustainability but only a small fraction of plastic waste is collected and reused. To keep plastics out of landfills and oceans, a transition is underway to create a new ecosystem of circular plastics, where companies avoid waste, keep resources in use as long as possible, and recover and regenerate materials. Join as the Dow Jones Energy & Sustainability event series examines what’s underway, what’s envisioned and the impact to come.

  • 12:15 p.m -12:35 p.m. | Problems with Recycling
  • Tossing bottles into the recycling bin seems easy enough. But only 9% of plastic waste is collected and recycled.
