Microphone Why plastic use should be lessened not demonised

Franco Costantini, managing director of Control Union UK talks with Innovation Forum’s Ian Welsh about why certification can be useful for companies wanting to rationalise their use of plastic and help them satisfy consumers on product impact.

They discuss the importance of not dismissing use of plastic out of hand, and examine the drivers for greater use of product plastic-free certification when this is appropriate.

Costantini also outlines how certification can also be useful in food and agriculture value chains.

Control Union was a sponsor of the recent Innovation Forum future for plastics conference.
