Webinar 131: The Japanese market of single-use plastic products

29-01-19 | 10:30 - 11:30 AM CET

What is Japan’s approach to address plastic pollution?

Japan is a world leader producer and consumer of plastic and disposable products. Yet, marine pollution from plastic waste is a growing concern and, after the EU, Japan is actively preparing a new strategy to tackle this issue before welcoming the next G20 in Osaka in 2019. The webinar will introduce the Japanese market of single-use plastic products and potential substitutes, focusing on the items targeted by the EU. We will review the latest development and current situation in Japan, including the political/legislative trends as well as initiatives from the government, business and civil society regarding this topic.

The webinar is targeted to EU companies offering alternative solutions to disposable petroleum-based plastic and seeking new market opportunities.
