Empowering investors to engage with companies on plastic waste and pollutionide
The PRI (UN Principles for Responsible Investment) published new guidance for investors on how to engage with companies on plastic waste and pollution. With expert contribution from the Foundation, the Investor Engagement Guides set out how investors can address the challenge of plastic waste and pollution by engaging with companies along the plastics value chain, and assessing their circular economy performance.
The guidance is the first comprehensive and practical framework for investors to mitigate risks related to investments in plastic packaging, and focuses on four key sectors across the plastics value chain:
- containers and packaging producers
- fast-moving consumer goods (FMCGs)
- waste management
