Date TBC 2022: PLASTICS netWORK – Reducing Environmental Impact

Plastics … the material everyone loves to hate!

It may divide opinion but plastics have an important role to play in today’s society. Many companies need to radically rethink how to integrate sustainability into their products and services … and a place to start is plastic pellets and preventing them being lost to the environment.

As well as the many environmental benefits, preventing pellet loss has many business benefits:

* Reputation: Protect your reputation by doing the right thing
* Cost and efficiency savings: Maximises your use of resources
* Regulatory compliance: Ensures regulatory compliance

Join us for the next PLASTICS netWORK event which will focus on this important topic. Hear how to prevent plastic pellet loss to the environment and the new PAS 510:2021 (the world’s first standard for preventing pellet loss). Understand how training and skills development can support your business in reducing your environmental impact plus a case study from a business that has reaped the benefits of focusing on sustainability.

Speakers TBC.
