New research shows recycling all mismanaged plastic waste in the six markets across South and Southeast Asia could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 229 million tonnes by 2030. The research by The Circulate Initiative highlights the link between plastic waste management and climate change. Among the research’s key findings was that diverting one tonne of plastic waste from open burning in any of the six markets towards proper collection and recycling could avoid generating over three tonnes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
