Successfully tackling the plastic problem from a business perspective is no easy task. It's a complex, intricate web with actions and decisions having multiple knock-on effects on supply chains and business operations.
With governments all over the world now focusing on this environmental issue, change throughout the whole supply chain is inevitable - from initial production all the way through to disposal.
Well-thought out change will have positive impacts for the oceans and the world we live in, but it can be unnerving for businesses who will be affected by new policies and legislation. However, this also presents a fantastic opportunity for organizations to make positive changes of their own.
