PLASTICS netWORK: Reducing Environmental Impact

PLASTICS netWORK: Reducing Environmental Impact
How can the use of plastics benefit the environment? How can this be supported through training and skills development?

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.

This informal network brings together experience and knowledge from across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and the Black Country and provide opportunities for business networking and knowledge transfer on issues such as sustainability, legislation, the environment and skills gaps.

Whether you are a material supplier, processor, packaging manufacturer or use plastics in your products or processes, then the PLASTICS netWORK is for you. With a myriad of legislation, consumer campaigns, regulations and industry initiatives, this virtual event will help you to navigate this confusing maze and show how we can all work together to support this key industry.

This event is being hosted on the Remo platform and a link to join will be emailed out beforehand.

The PLASTICS netWORK is run by PS Partnerships, in collaboration with The Polymer Training and Innovation Centre and CREST

CREST (ESBRC project) is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
