To invest in recycling plastics, embrace risk and watch where you divest: JBIC's Tadashi Maeda

Want to Invest in Recycling Plastics? Embrace Risk, Be Careful Where You Divest From | GZERO Media

Tadashi Maeda, governor of the Japan Bank for International Cooperation, believes there's huge potential for new technology to solve the global problem of plastic pollution via recycling. But to do so, he says companies should first be a bit less risk-averse with new ways of doing things, and don't rush to divest from countries that not only consume a lot of single-use plastics but also burn much coal like Indonesia or Vietnam.

Maeda spoke during the Sustainability Leaders Summit, a live GZERO event sponsored by Suntory. Watch the full discussion here.
