In the context of the pandemic and throughout 2021 the Swiss chambers of commerce in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region intensified exchanges and collaboration on several initiatives. The most tangible and immediate results were generated in the form of co-hosted and co-attended regional events, such as the Roche Webinar organised by the Swiss Thai Chamber of Commerce.

While the evolution of the overall scope and nature of SwissCham APAC collaboration is work-in-progress, we felt a common platform facilitating the organization of a series of events throughout 2022 would be highly valued in order to create opportunities for cross-border networking, exchanges and teamwork.

 

Join us virtually for the 3rd episode of the 

SwissCham APAC Sustainability Event Series in 2022 on 

15 September from 3pm to 4.30pm

Topic: Deep Dive into Plastics

The many speakers represent innovative Swiss SMEs, social enterprises and Swiss multinationals.

Why dedicate a whole episode to Plastics? 

Although this material is an integral part of our daily lives, the wide-scale use of plastic did not begin until around 1950, after the end of the Second World War. Nowadays, plastics have found their way into most areas of our daily lives. The largest market, however, is the packaging industry, where these materials are designed for immediate disposal. 

As customers, we are expected to dispose of these materials in such a way that they can be recycled. After having disposed of them in the garbage, even if it is separated, we however don’t know what happens to it. However, more than often they are not properly disposed of or recycled and end up in the oceans or in nature, harming the ecosystem.

 

That’s why we want to dedicate the 3rd episode of the SwissCham APAC sustainability series to this material and explore alternative materials and measures taken by multinational companies to use less or alternative materials for packaging their products. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
