About the Re|focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit

The Re|focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit addresses the real-world challenges you face as your company pushes recycled content and sustainable manufacturing. As an active participant in the plastics industry, you know that we're turning a corner, moving from being one that aspires to sustainability to one that puts our commitment to recycling and reusing into action. Our industry is transforming itself and Re|focus will hone in on the fact that recycling and sustainability are more than just goals and promises.

Re|focus will continue to challenge brand owners, processors, engineers, product developers and the entire supply chain to "refocus" on product design, technology and manufacturing with an eye toward recycled and sustainable content, designed for recycling and driving sustainability.
