Plastic industry plays a major role in climate change, and Korea's annual plastic consumption per person was 98kg in 2016 which is the highest in the world. By 2050, making and disposing of plastics could be responsible for a cumulative 56 gigatons of carbon, 10-13 percent of the world's remaining carbon budget. Thus, EU-Korea Climate Action Project and Korea Zero Waste Movement Network organize a workshop designed to explore business solutions to tackle such plastic waste challenge by sharing innovative technologies and initiatives in Europe and Korea. We're looking forward to seeing you there!
