Delivering a Positive Landscape around Plastics One Year into the Pledge

Klöckner Pentaplast (kp) will be presenting “Positive Plastics Pledge for a Circular and Sustainable Future” at Pack Expo Las Vegas. Lubna Edwards, kp’s Global Sustainability Director, will talk about how global megatrends and market insight are driving business decisions for a sustainable circular future and the journey experienced by kp.

Plastic is a material that has been solving many challenges for generations, yet it has come under unprecedented scrutiny. The sustainable and functional features and benefits of plastic packaging are unmatched by alternative materials to protect and preserve food, keeping it safe and preventing food waste. It is also a material for today’s circular economy given its benefits of true recyclability and 100% use of recycled content, but opinions are divided.

Lubna will dispel the myths about plastics, moving away from science fiction to facts backed by science, outlining how kp has turned challenges into opportunities working with every member of the value chain, the government and engaging citizens to collectively deliver closed loop solutions. Hear how kp is collaborating to deliver a positive landscape around plastics, outlining what has been achieved one year after the launch of their Positive Plastics Pledge.
