Changing the way we think about plastics

About the event

Plastic Waste Free World Europe cemented itself worldwide as the most talked-about and best-attended event focusing on eliminating plastic waste, after it attracted some of the biggest brands and most respected sustainability professionals globally during its first outing. This senior executive-level conference and exhibition honed in on the exploration of how international businesses from a wide variety of industries can reduce their use of fossil-fuel-based plastics, eliminate single-use plastics, design and create more sustainable bio-sourced products and packaging solutions, introduce more circular business models, and ultimately help contribute to improving the global plastic pollution crisis.

We are bringing together 130+ international speakers and over 500 delegates to debate and discuss the latest business models, strategies, materials innovations, future regulations, manufacturing technologies, bio-sourced solutions and the latest and next-generation technologies to help meet future plastic waste targets and create highly sustainable products accepted by rapidly evolving consumer demands.
