New policy brief on a sectoral climate club for the plastic industry
How could a sectoral climate club for the plastic industry look like? How could it support the transformation of the sector? And how would it be positioned within a changing governance landscape? A new policy brief from NDC ASPECTS provides answers.
The policy brief describes four complementary strategies that will be necessary to achieve climate neutrality in the sector and the existing global governance landscape for plastic: 1. Utilizing renewable and low-carbon energy inputs, 2. Increasing recycling, 3. Using alternative feedstocks, and 4. Reducing demand. Additionally, it examines the creation of an international plastics climate club that could foster climate neutrality in the sector and its relationship with the ongoing negotiations for the plastic pollution treaty.
