Judging from the first day of talks, the third round of United Nations plastics treaty negotiations are going to be full of news. The result of these talks could have a major impact on the industry's future.
But what changes are possible, and who is speaking on behalf of the plastics industry? If you haven't been paying close attention, make sure to start your fact-finding with Steve Toloken's opening story, which sets the stage for the rest of the week. I also had a chance to talk to Steve for our Material Insights video. We talked about how the global plastics treaty will start to take shape this week and what delegates are still debating.
Steve's in Nairobi, Kenya, for the talks, and he's interviewing a lot of the key players. Watch for breaking news every day. And for more background, make sure to check out his podcasts from the last round of talks, which were held in Paris in May.
