Moving into a new decade, historical assumptions regarding plastics growth and its role in society are changing, while the global industry expands and adapts to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Increased geopolitical awareness, emphasis on corporate social responsibility and attention towards environmental concerns has created significant challenges and opportunities for plastics across the globe. How will the industry respond and can the industry adapt to forces that are reshaping the role of plastics in society?
At the 8th Global Plastics Summit Online hosted by IHS Markit
and the Plastics Industry Association, attendees can expect to hear
from today's major chemical companies as they outline strategies
and innovations being used to tackle the issues of plastics waste
and building a more sustainable future. Due to the uncertainty
caused by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, this event will be
held as an innovative virtual program with pre-recorded talks, live
panel sessions and virtual Q&A.
Three hundred industry decision makers come together to educate, inspire one another, and gain a comprehensive view with which to navigate the complex, ever-changing global plastics industry. This year, the Plastics Industry Association and IHS Markit have combined GPS with PLASTICS' existing Flexible Film & Bag Conference and Rigid Packaging Group signature events into one cross-industry gathering. This change will provide plastic processors and convertors, brand owners, and material and equipment suppliers the opportunity to expand their horizons and get at the root of what they do best - innovate.
