This is the registration for the live-streaming webinar for Giuliana Torta's presentation at CT DEEP.
Please join us for this presentation to learn more the European Commission's strategy for managing plastics in a circular economy. In May 2018, the European Commission proposed a new directive to tackle marine litter. The initiative targets the top ten single use plastic items found on EU beaches and abandoned, lost and disposed of fishing gear , which together constitute 70% of all marine litter items. The Single Use Plastics Directive is an integral part of EC's Plastics Strategy and an important element of the Circular Economy Action Plan.
Giuliana Torta, Counsellor for Environment, Fisheries and Ocean policies at the E.U. Delegation to the U.S. in Washington DC will discuss the European plastic ban, compare the E.U. and U.S. political environments, and share strategies we can implement.
