Polymer producers association PlasticsEurope (Brussels / Belgium; www.plasticseurope.org) has announced a webinar taking place on 2 April 2020, which will cover the results of its Plastic Leak Project (PLP). The initiative was co-founded by sustainability consulting firm Quantis (www.quantis-intl.com) and ecodesign centre Shaping Environmental Action (www.shaping-ea.com) in February 2019 in partnership with 35 public, private and scientific organisations see Plasteurope.com of 09.05.2019.

The year-long project has yielded a science-based methodology to map, measure and forecast plastics leakage in corporate value chains.
