What are plastic credits ?
Can “Plastic Credits” be used to build waste management infrastructure in developing countries, address humanitarian and social needs, and reduce plastic waste?
Can they be a tool for “greenwashing”? What exactly are they, and how do they work?
These questions will be addressed by two special guest speakers from ClimeCo at the next Plastic Solutions Task Force meeting to be held via Zoom at two different times on Monday, January 10, 2022, at 9 am and 6 pm Pacific Time (Seattle/LA Time)
