The Pew Charitable Trusts and SYSTEMIQ invite you to the global virtual launch of the new report “Breaking the Plastic Wave: A Comprehensive Assessment of Pathways Towards Stopping Ocean Plastic Pollution”
Join us on Friday 24th July 2020 for a deep-dive discussion on the key findings, and how industry, government and civil society can work together to substantially reduce projected ocean plastic pollution flows. The findings are based on a first-of-its kind model of the global plastics system, which estimates increases in plastic pollution under a business as usual scenario and examines the economic, environmental and social implications of six different strategies to address the problem.

Our expert speakers will share insights from the report, as well as perspectives from industry, government and civil society.

They include:

Martin Stuchtey – Founder and Managing Partner, SYSTEMIQ
Winnie Lau – Senior Manager, Preventing Ocean Plastics,
The Pew Charitable Trusts
José María Figueres – Former President, Costa Rica
Sanda Ojiambo – CEO & Executive Director,
UN Global Compact
Alan Jope – CEO, Unilever
Melati Wijsen – Founder, Bye Bye Plastic Bags

Moderated by Louise Beale, journalist and presenter for Channel 5 News (UK)
