Webinar Details: 
Driven by global brands’ pledges, demand for high quality recycled resins, including food-grade RPET is expected to grow in Latin America, especially in Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, and Chile. However, with the Covid-19 pandemic, how is the RPET industry affected and how soon will it recover?

To ensure the circularity of packaging and accelerate the transition to a 100% circular packaging economy, companies have to consider improvement in product design and develop reusable packaging solutions. Investments in efficient and inclusive channels to increase collection and recycling, as well as actions to preserve natural resources by reintegrating recycled materials into packaging and increasing the use of renewable materials.

In Latin America and the Caribbean, PepsiCo has launched “Recycling with Purpose,” a circular economy model that promotes recycling across the region. This initiative will support PepsiCo’s commitment to build a world where plastics need never become waste through a vision rooted in three pillars: reducing, recycling and reinventing. Hear from Pepsico how they plan to achieve annual reduction of virgin plastic use and be 100% recyclable by 2025.
