UNEP FI Webinar- Date: October 4, 2012. Webinar
WEBINAR: How Transparency in Plastic Use can Benefit Companies and Investors
Webinar | 4 October, 10:00 AM CET and 4:00 PM CET
The Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP) seeks to help businesses improve their efficiency while reducing their environmental impact through measuring and managing their "plastic footprint." In the coming months, the PDP will be inviting organizations from around the world to submit disclosure reports, increasing transparency in reporting standards to the benefit of the UNEP FI community.
Attendees to this webinar will learn about the build-up of plastic in our environment, the Plastic Disclosure Project's innovative way of working with companies and investors to bring about sustainable change, and on how transparency in reporting on plastic can bring value to the investment management community. We will seek to answer:
- Why should we be concerned about plastic?
- Why should organisations start measuring and disclosing their "plastic footprint"?
- How can the investment community get involved, and what value will it bring?
