University Of Surrey Report Questions Companies’ Commitment to Plastic Reduction

October 9, 2019: 12:00 AM EST
A new report from researchers at the University of Surrey, UK, looks at the commitments food and beverage companies have been making on reducing single-use plastic. It covers 12 companies that represent some of the most well-known brands in the UK, including manufacturers and supermarket chains. Each claims to be a pioneering force for plastic reduction, but the authors, from the University’s School of Law, say the impact of these efforts remains unclear. One of authors said that they deflect attention from their contribution to the problem by using “optimistic language” that obscures the fact that companies have only scratched the surface of the challenge, and that their initiatives have been motivated by new legislation. The report also argues that strategies to tackle the problem of plastic require “transparent and meaningful evidence-based measurement”, and that’s missing at the moment.[Image Credit: © pasja1000 from Pixabay]
