Beyond Plastic Pollution Conference – Pathways To Cleaner Oceans

When valuable resources float out to sea, they not only pollute the human food chain and detrimentally impact wildlife, they represent a shocking waste of resources, and a financial loss to business and industry. The cost of inefficient recycling systems is already a burden, economically, socially and health-wise. It will only grow worse, weighing heavily on business, government and community. Unless we act now to move beyond plastic pollution.

For the first time, in the Asia-Pacific region, Boomerang Alliance is convening a conference, bringing together the finest thinkers, change makers and innovators to assess the research, the prognosis, and the solutions to marine plastic pollution.

Can your business or community afford to be the last to know about global best practice regulations; how to reduce the plastic footprint of your business or industry; potential new technologies, alternative materials, and plastic-free pathways?

Let’s build a healthier economy, and a better world, by turning waste into opportunity.

Organised by the Boomerang Alliance.
Venue: Dockside, Cockle Bay, 30 October – 1 November, 2017
