World Economic Forum - The New Plastics Economy Catalysing action

In January 2016, the World Economic Forum, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and McKinsey & Company published the report The New Plastics Economy – Rethinking the future of plastics. It was produced as part of MainStream – a multi-industry, global initiative which aims to accelerate business-driven innovations and help scale the circular economy. For the first time, the report provided transparency on global plastics material flows and associated economics.
