Many people are working hard to solve the plastic pollution issue, but how successful are these efforts? What are the key solutions? What are the challenges? What more can we do?

In this podcast, we are sharing insights into the plastic waste issue in South and Southeast Asia, bringing together industry leaders — from large companies to early-stage startups. You will hear more about the nature and scale of the issue, opportunities and key barriers to developing local solutions, as well as how startups, companies, ecosystem builders and informal workers can work together to move efforts forward.
