In April, EOS at Federated Hermes published a white paper – Investor Expectations for Global Plastic Challenges. This set out the scale and complexity of the problem and offered investors ways to engage with companies in three key sectors – chemicals, consumer goods and retail.
Investors are concerned that a failure to account for the negative impacts of plastic has resulted in numerous interlinked challenges – from acute environmental pollution and potential human health impacts, to substantial greenhouse gas emissions across plastics value chains.
