[COP27] Zero Waste as Climate Justice: Frontline Solutions to Emissions from the Plastics & Petrochemical Sector

Plastic pollutes the climate and perpetuates environmental injustices at every stage of its lifecycle. However, we can curb emissions by incorporating simple, effective, low-cost zero waste strategies. Our expert panelists organize on the frontlines of the plastics crisis and will discuss the opportunities and threats to a just transition to zero waste.
