EY says it plans to contribute to the development of innovative and self-sustaining infrastructure systems that communities can own and operate.
LONDON — The EY organization has joined the Alliance to End Plastic Waste along with more than 90 companies, project collaborators, allies and supporters who have a demonstrated interest in reducing plastic waste.
Along with its global network of members and partners, the Alliance has built a portfolio of over 35 ongoing projects in 29 countries to support the transition to a circular economy for plastics.
The focus of this initiative is to accelerate solutions to improve the collection, sorting, processing, and recycling of plastic waste.
According to the announcement from EY, 3 billion people worldwide still do not have access to proper waste management services. EY says it plans to contribute to the development of innovative and self-sustaining infrastructure systems that communities can own and operate.
“Ending plastic waste is a towering ambition that requires action across all segments of society. I believe that through innovation and collaboration with the Alliance community, lasting change can be achieved. One of the key next steps is going to be unlocking the necessary investment in circular, innovative, and viable solutions already adopted by the Alliance,” said Dr.-Ing. Frank Jenner, EY global chemicals & advanced materials leader in a statement.
