Recycling mismanaged plastic waste can reduce GHG emissions, says a new report by The Circulate Initiative. “The Climate Benefits of Plastic Waste Management in India and Southeast Asia” report illustrates the potential of investing in effective plastic waste management and recycling across India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam, to reduce greenhousegas (GHG) emissions and combat climate change.
The addition of new markets on the Plastic Lifecycle Assessment Calculator for the Environment and Society (PLACES) will support a broader scope of investors, local governments and corporations in the region to assess opportunities in the plastics circular economy based on their environmental impact.
