The British Plastics Federation (BPF, London / UK; www.bpf.co.uk) has developed an online resource to show how plastics are contributing to a more sustainable world, particularly concerning the United Nations’ (New York, New York / USA; www.un.org) 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) to be achieved around the world by 2030.

The resource covers 10 of the SDGs, focusing on those where the plastics industry has the most significant contribution. These are
  • zero hunger,
  • good health and wellbeing,
  • clean water and sanitation,
  • affordable and clean energy,
  • decent work and economic growth,
  • industry, innovation and infrastructure,
  • sustainable cities and communities,
  • responsible consumption and production,
  • climate action and
  • life below water.
“We welcome submissions to the BPF online resource from our member companies about their contributions to achieving these economic, social and environmental goals,” said BPF director-general Philip Law.

Complementing the web-based tool, BPF is also holding a sustainability seminar, which will feature a number of presentations that relate to particular SDGs. The seminar will take place on 12 February 2020 at BPF’s offices in London / UK. Click here to register.
