Mark you calendars for October 26-27, 2023, when the Holiday Inn Jakarta Kemayoran, Indonesia, will welcome the Indo Pacific Circular Plastics Summit 2023, featuring a long list of eminent experts in sustainability.
"According to the reliable industry market research data, only 14 percent of plastics are recycled, resulting in a loss of as much as $120 billion a year to the global economy. In recent months, some of the world biggest brands and plastics manufacturers have issued bold challenges to create new supply chains from plastic waste. It’s a critical start, but success will require broad, global engagement among companies, governments, policy makers and others to create a truly circular plastics economy," says event organizer Apex International.
