Workshop: Financing Mechanism for Plastic Waste Management – the Potential Risks and Opportunities of Plastic Credits

The PREVENT Waste Alliance would like to invite you to its workshop in Bangalore, India, on 22 September 2022 from 9am to 5pm on the topic of plastic waste management.

Together with PREVENT members and partners in India, we will discuss financing mechanisms for plastic waste management by focusing on the potential risks and opportunities of plastic credits.

Various sessions are planned to introduce the concept of plastic credits and their use as a sustainable source of income for waste collection, recovery and recycling. Detailed insights into plastic credit activities will be provided by PREVENT pilot projects in India. This will allow for an open exchange and discussion on the potential benefits and risks of plastic credits, the need for standardised plastic credit approaches for the Indian market and the expectations that might come with it.
