ACCELERATING INNOVATION FOR CALIFORNIA'S
NEW PLASTICS ECONOMY
A policy round table
Plastic pollution is a well-recognized multi-faceted problem with broad economic impacts on California's ocean and coastal resources, agriculture and human health.
It is also recognized as an untapped innovation and investment opportunity.
Entrepreneurs are developing new materials and products that are benign to the environment, circular in their design, and innovative in their end-of-life disposal. These innovations have the potential to reshape one of the oldest commodity markets and address the long-standing problems associated with plastic pollution.
Join us to explore the role of public policy in California to advance commercialization and adoption of innovation in this unique new marketplace.
