Single-use plastics: The 2021 roadmap for sustainable business

24th March 2021

It’s been one of the biggest sustainable business issues of the past decade: tackling the scourge of single-use plastics. But has the progress delivered in 2019 off the back of the so-called “Attenborough effect” been offset by the pandemic?

As we embark upon a critical few years of action to build back better from the coronavirus pandemic, this report explores whether momentum on single-use plastics will continue in the next normal.

Are businesses turning single-use plastic ambitions into action? What political, organisational and infrastructural challenges remain? And – crucially – how can sustainability and CSR professionals collaborate and innovate their way towards an economy free of single-use plastics? 

This insight report provides a much-needed progress update on the UK’s transition away from single-use plastics; and acts as a definitive guide for businesses looking to eliminate single-use plastics waste through reduction, redesign and phase-out of the material – in a way that doesn’t lead to any unintended consequences.

The report includes a mix of high-level thought-leadership contributions, best-practice case studies and links through to exclusive articles detailing best-practice and key considerations in eliminating single-use plastics across the value chain.
