Interview with Daniella Russo, CEO of Think Beyond Plastic - a speaker at the seventh SEE Conference on Waste Management & Recycling 2016
  Plastic pollution, innovation accelerator, investments, entrepreneurship, opportunities, solutions… What do these hot issues in our high-tech and globalizing world have in common? Answers are provided in the lecture of Daniella Russo, founder and CEO of Think Beyond Plastic. She crossed the Atlantic not just to deliver a lecture at the Save the Planet Conference, but also to share the innovative ideas and best practices of her company, to provide vision and set direction to academics and entrepreneurs alike, and to fire the public with enthusiasm and confidence that innovation and entrepreneurship need support and underlie the way to a better future for all.
Why focus on plastic pollution?
Plastic pollution is an untapped investment and innovation opportunity. In the last 50 years global plastic production has exploded resulting in visible accumulations of plastic trash. Plastic pollution is a crisis in global governance, a market failure, a technological challenge, and a social justice issue. Eliminating ocean plastic pollution, for example, is a strategic goal, due to the strategic importance of a healthy ocean for the wellbeing of our shared planet Earth.
Economic opportunity in plastic pollution – how does this happen?
Figures speak for themselves. In the last 20 years alone, the world has consumed more plastic than the entire 20th century. Read the rest of the interview here.
