From Sea to Shelf: Partnerships – what are they worth?

May 28, 2024 | Event

On Tuesday the 25th of June, Ocean Plastic Forum is hosting a conference focused on partnerships in the ocean plastic industry.

Plastic pollution in our marine environment is still a rising concern that must be adressed by promoting a circular economy, where plastic resources are recycled and integrated into circular systems. This is a complex process that requires coordinated and cohesive efforts, not only at the policitcal level but also between businesses, when ocean- and household plastic is recycled into new products.

Ocean Plastic Forum invites you to the conference “From Sea to Shelf: Partnerships – what are they worth?” that focuses on how partnerships between businesses is a crucial factor in reducing plastic pollution in our marine environments and promoting the recycling of ocean- and household plastic.

Drawing on experiences from a range of succesful partnerships, the conference explores what it takes to establish and maintain effective partnerships and highlights the specific tools, methods, and approaches neede for them to make a difference and achieve concrete results in the recycling of ocean- and household plastic.

The event is free, but registration is required.
