PRODUCT, SERVICE & DESIGN INNOVATION - The Beyond Plastics Challenge aims to address the plastics dilemma on Earth through the design and production of solutions aided by access to space. The two winning concepts will be able to conduct research in the International Space Station’s unique, weightless environment.
FROM PURPOSE TO ACTION: BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE TOGETHER - Despite more leagues and arenas introducing initiatives to curb waste from concessions and encourage recycling, the science and innovation necessary to create lasting impact across the board (or the court or field) are still missing. That's where Dow and its partners come in.
WASTE NOT - New York-based startup Izzy Zero Waste Beauty is out to show the incredibly wasteful beauty industry that it can mend its wicked ways — vastly reducing its footprint through a hyper-local supply chain and 100% refillable, recyclable products.
THE NEXT ECONOMY - Plastic neutrality is achieved when an individual or organization’s plastic footprint is measured and balanced by the removal and recovery of plastic waste from nature, and complemented by reductions in plastic use.
WASTE NOT - After achieving a milestone in packaging recycling, Carbios’ unique biological recycling technology stands to fundamentally change the circularity of textiles.
FINANCE & INVESTMENT - Our vision is to embed effective recycling across the region’s islands and enable value-added processing of materials where it makes commercial sense — but we’ve been held back by many challenges. For businesses and brands that sell into the Caribbean, it’s an opportunity to be part of our mission and walk their talk around plastic pollution reduction and circularity.
OUR HEALTHY LIVES MISSION - Reuse-and-refill is one of a suite of solutions that consumer goods companies are introducing to facilitate more responsible use of packaging. Consumers expect companies to help make more sustainable consumption easier, while companies rely on consumers to embrace improvements to their products.
CHEMISTRY, MATERIALS & PACKAGING - Proof of concept for direct production of monoethylene glycol (MEG), a key building block in sustainable PET manufacturing, has been completed at lab scale.
WALKING THE TALK - First-ever ranking of leading European supermarkets’ commitments to dial back their use and waste of plastic reveals lack of real action.
FROM PURPOSE TO ACTION: BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE TOGETHER - These investments offer proof-of-concept for scaling more investments in waste infrastructure across North America. Modernizing Sims’ recycling capabilities acts as a circularity laboratory, which can lead to better design for the whole US recycling system.
THE NEXT ECONOMY - As the global plastic-pollution crisis continues to deepen, key stakeholders must come together to find and fund solutions. The introduction of plastic credits has brought with it a renewed cause for optimism.
PRODUCT, SERVICE & DESIGN INNOVATION - The impact of microplastics on our world is daunting; but every step we take to curb the creation of more microplastics, while also reducing how much of them continue lurking in the environment, makes a difference.
COLLABORATION - In an effort to combat climate change and reduce waste in its value chain, Estée Lauder Companies’ charitable wing, the ELC Charitable Foundation, has partnered with Plastics for Change to improve the livelihoods of waste collectors in India while diverting ocean-bound plastics.
WASTE NOT - Through the seven-year partnership, Kia will support The Ocean Cleanup’s work and construction of new plastic-collection devices, and integrate portions of the harvested plastic into its value chain.
THE NEXT ECONOMY - In finding innovative ways to ensure new electronics are made from their recycled counterparts, one of the biggest barriers for manufacturers continues to be the supply chain.
CHEMISTRY, MATERIALS & PACKAGING - As we see more and more legislation aimed at improving both recyclability and safety of packaging, it is best to first understand your company’s baseline in sustainable packaging. Then, there are a growing number of tools designed to help companies keep track of and meet these evolving requirements.
CHEMISTRY, MATERIALS & PACKAGING - The future of sustainable packaging and design lies in our ability to do most of the important work in a digital space. Manufacturers will be left behind if they fail to embrace tools such as digital twins, 3D product and packaging visualization, and consumer packaging buyback.
WASTE NOT - Reducing plastic waste is a winning issue for consumers. With so many examples of early success and ROI, there’s no better time to join the movement by committing to reduce plastic pollution and limiting the need for virgin plastic.
BEHAVIOR CHANGE - Even when effective collection, messages and messenger are skillfully deployed, there are still factors that complicate consumer recycling behavior.
THE NEXT ECONOMY - The tourism industry is responsible for approximately 8% of global carbon emissions. For every event that commits to more sustainable practices, the VR sector does its part in helping the tourism industry as a whole become more resilient in the face of climate change.
