SYSTEMIQ's report »ReShaping Plastics: Pathways to a Circular, Climate Neutral Plastics System in Europe« examines the plastics industry in Europe and identifies a path to achieve the goal of climate neutrality by 2050. Despite progress on circularity and bold commitments on greenhouse gas emissions, the plastics sector faces significant challenges with a critical window for action in the next three to five years.
The "ReShaping Plastics" study focuses on four of the most important plastics-using sectors: packaging, household goods, automotive and construction. At its core is a data-driven model of the European plastics system, which allows the research team to assess the impact of different interventions and system scenarios from now until 2050. This scenario analysis led to five key findings that could help leaders and decision-makers across the public sector, private sector, and civil society to find an effective pathway towards a highly circular, low-carbon emission plastics system.
