Scaling the Market for Post-Consumer Recycled Content What will it take to scale the domestic market for post-consumer recycled content? The demand for recycled plastics has skyrocketed — so much so that brands and packaging producers are experiencing limited supply. This is due, in part, to ambitious recycled content commitments by CPG giants across the nation and globe. What will it take to scale the domestic market for post-consumer recycled content and meet this growing demand? Hear perspectives from stakeholders across the value chain — from plastic producers and brands to recyclers and investors.

A Roadmap for Best of Class Circular Partnerships How can companies navigate internal and external roadblocks in order to unlock circular advancement? Fueled by consumer activism and investor demand, the transition from a linear to a circular economy is disrupting how the private sector conventionally positions its sustainability agenda. Traditionally siloed in a company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR), the infusion of circular economy into sustainability has provided companies a platform to unlock financial value and demonstrate ROI, while appealing to a broad range of diverse stakeholders. For many companies however, the rapid shift to a circular platform is causing tension in how a company prioritizes, partners and communicates sustainability and circular economy initiatives both internally and externally. To ensure that companies are aligned on their sustainability, shared value and philanthropic initiatives, this discussion will address: How to identify and overcome internal barriers that prohibit progress on circular economy goals. Insights into the internal silos around sustainability/corporate responsibility that exist in the corporate space that stifle innovation, grow distrust and potentially can cause financial harm to the company. Best practices on integrating circular economy initiatives into the corporate ecosystem to drive internal alignment, innovation and external partnerships. Internal corporate value chain biases (Finance, Sustainability, CSR and Corporate Foundation) How to build successful corporate and nonprofit circular partnerships.
