Embedding sustainability in plastic!

Long considered one of the primary villains of environmental pollution, plastics still retain an indelible presence in our life. According to the Global Plastics Outlook released by OECD this February, global plastic consumption in 2019 amounted to approximately 460 million tons, almost double from 2000. Furthermore, plastics already produced do not decompose naturally for a long time, discharging toxic substances. Accordingly, recycling plastics already in circulation in an eco-friendly way is critical to reduce plastic consumption. On the occasion of the World Environment Month falling in June, let’s take a look at how SK Group is trying to foster a plastic recycling ecosystem.
