Plastic waste and climate change go together. In fact, the mismanagement of plastic waste is a serious contributor to climate change and a significant — but often overlooked — investment opportunity for climate investors. Investors have (understandably) focused on opportunities directly related to climate change, such as renewables, fuel cells, or energy efficiency, to fight climate change. But that approach is wholly insufficient: climate change is a systems problem that demands a system solution. That means we have to think broader.
