The Regional Knowledge Centre for Marine Plastic Debris invited businesses contributing to the reduction of plastic waste in ASEAN + 3 countries to share their challenges and lessons learned through our Private Sector Platform (PSP) webinar series. The first round of the webinar series invited companies from Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Viet Nam.

Throughout the many discussions, we learned that the private sector is keen to take more actions to reduce plastic pollution. However, they need further collaboration with other stakeholders. Particularly, support from the policymakers and the consumers are highlighted as fundamental by the private sector’s representatives.

We summarized the learnings in our Plastic Insight Infographic: “The Private Sector’s Role – part 1”. Please take a look.
