The Pew Charitable Trusts and SYSTEMIQ invite you to the global launch of the new report "Breaking the Plastic Wave: A Comprehensive Assessment of Pathways Towards Stopping Ocean Plastic Pollution".

Join us on Friday 24th July 2020 for a deep-dive discussion on the key findings, and how industry, government and civil society can work together to substantially reduce projected ocean plastic pollution flows. The findings are based on a first-of-its kind model of the global plastics system, which estimates increases in plastic pollution under a business as usual scenario and examines the economic, environmental and social implications of six different strategies to address the problem. Our expert speakers will share insights from the report. They include:

Martin Stuchtey - Founder and Managing Partner, SYSTEMIQ

Winnie Lau - Senior Manager, Preventing Ocean Plastics, The Pew Charitable Trusts

José María Figueres - Former President, Costa Rica

Sanda Ojiambo - CEO & Executive Director, UN Global Compact

Alan Jope - CEO, Unilever

Melati Wijsen - Founder, Bye Bye Plastic Bags

Moderated by Louise Beale, journalist and presenter for Channel 5 News (UK).

In addition to this main event, we will be hosting two further webinars featuring members of the Pew and SYSTEMIQ teams to provide convenient alternative times and additional opportunities to engage with those behind the report:

  • Tuesday 28th July - 06:00am BST / 12:00 WIB / 14:00 JST
  • Thursday 30th July - 09:00 PDT / 12:00 EDT / 17:00 BST

Please note these subsequent events will not include the full panel outlined above.
