Sponsored: Why is Taking on Plastic Pollution So Damn Hard? An Honest Conversation

9:00 - 10:00 am

Room 402, Chiliwack

Plastic waste leaking into the environment is expected to triple by 2040. Achieving existing public and private sector commitments will reduce the volume of plastic flowing into the ocean by just 7 percent despite unparalleled consumer pressure.

What are the biggest roadblocks in transitioning to a circular economy? How will upcoming regulation affect corporate responsibility? Which sort of initiatives are consumers responding to? What should brands be focusing on? Can environmental justice be measured?

Expert panelists discuss the biggest challenges.
