Information brief on plastics for investors

2019-10-31

The potential of the financial sector to contribute to a sustainable development has been highlighted in recent years, by actors from both the political sphere and within the financial sector. Decarbonizing the economy will on the one hand require massive investments in new green infrastructure, and on the other massive divestments from assets related to fossil fuel extraction that promote a fossil lock-in. In connection to the STEPS programme researchers at Lund University and IVL The Swedish Environmental Research Institute have published an information brief for investors, presenting the challenges and opportunities for investments supporting the decarbonization of the plastics industry. The report is available for download here: www.lu.se/sites/www.lu.se/files/plastics_and_sustainable_investments_download.pdf.
