Plastic. It's everywhere. And that's part of the problem. In our oceans alone, the equivalent of a truckload of plastic waste is dumped every minute. This impacts the food chain, livelihoods, and our health. What can be done? What is being done? ClimateBiz takes on the issue of marine plastic waste with Rob Kaplan, founder and CEO of circulate capital and IFCs Director and global head for climate for Vivek Pathak.
"By combining upstream innovations and downstream interventions, we could see an 80% reduction of plastic pollution over the next 10 to 20 years."
"We are going to see some innovative breakthroughs when it comes to alternatives to plastic."
