Finally..New Initiatives for Asia!

June 8, 2022

This is episode three, of a three-part podcast series exploring the Global Plastic Treaty. The series is co-produced by the Wilson Center's China Environment Forum and Sustainable Asia.

Of the various challenges Asian countries face when tackling plastic waste…lack of funding is perhaps the one common thread.  So how can more money get to needed programs here? Seeing the rising demand for PCR (post consumer recycled plastics), Doug Woodring and Maryam AlMansoori believe they have one solution: a global PCR commodity exchange. Meanwhile, Maggie Lee of VERRA talks about their expansion into plastic credits. Would this replica of carbon credits see similar results?
