Join us for a free webinar to learn more about standards for plastic waste and recycling.

Australian and international standards for managing plastic can help us reduce waste at all stages of a product’s lifecycle. This covers plastics design, manufacturing, recycling and reuse.

Standards are important guidelines and codes of practice. They set parameters for the design of plastic items, such as how and what it’s made of, increasing recycled content, and compostability.

We mapped what standards exist, and where there are gaps. This reveals opportunities for new standards that can reduce plastic waste.

We’ll be joined by Standards Australia to find out how we can implement standards across the plastics supply chain to help boost our circular economy and turn plastic waste into a resource.
