According to the United Nations Environment Programme, only about 9 percent of the 9.9 billion tons of plastic generated globally since the 1950s has been recycled. And almost half of the plastic waste poisoning marine life, contaminating food, and clogging waterways and sewers comes from consumer packaging. As citizens and governments wake up to this plastic pollution problem, they’re turning to business to solve it.
As another year ends, it’s time to reflect on what was achieved in 2019. There are many things that come to mind, such as the launch of new innovations, a growing community of customers, and new exciting opportunities to make organizations safer and more productive. We also reflect on what we did to help make a difference for the planet. At Enablon, we don’t believe in only talking about sustainability. We also believe in taking action.
