Plastics Unwrapped: Using legal frameworks to drive corporate action
Date/time: 10th June, 5pm BST
Free virtual event
Plastics are a ubiquitous part of our daily lives. Not only do they account for much of the world’s waste and over 80% of pollution on the sea’s surface but they also pose a serious risk to businesses. In 2018, ClientEarth developed a framework describing business risks associated with plastics and since then have been working on opportunities to put this into practice.
Join Tatiana Luján, Lawyer, Plastics Lead at ClientEarth and Emma Priestland, Global Corporate Campaigns Coordinator at Break Free From Plastic, as they unwrap the many ways that plastic affects the environment and how putting effective legal frameworks into practice creates positive results.
