"We need to achieve real, measurable, and immediate reductions in plastic and CO2 emissions in order to stay within 1.5C and prevent future irreparable environmental damage. In order to accomplish this, raw materials, manufactures, brands, legislators and governments all play an essential role," explains Mr. Cuetara. "Our solution is one of innovation, action, and immediacy. Alongside our esteemed panel guests, we hope to shed light on the unique opportunities that lie ahead and the challenges we'll need to surmount together."
