Despite enormous public attention to the increasing environmental impact of plastic waste, a global agenda to solve the problem is not in sight. This is the critical finding of a policy paper we published jointly with the Röchling Foundation.
We would like to thank everyone who made this study possible. The entire Röchling Foundation team, above all Uwe Amrhein, Annunziata Gräfin Hoensbroech and Julia Eberhardt for the excellent and intersting cooperation. To all the experts who provided us with their time and knowledge in the field of plastics and the environment.

POLYPROBLEM - The Stakeholder Dialogue brought together leading actors from civil society, politics, research and industry to discuss together what collaborations we are making, so that the high attention paid to the plastic and environmental housekeeping leads to effective solutions.
Joining forces. Developing solutions together instead of always launching new individual projects. The aim of the first joint stakeholder dialogue PolyProblem of the Röchling Foundation and Wider Sense was to better combine the possibilities of business, science and civil society. Guided by the idea of Collective Impact, around 150 experts from politics, foundations, civil society and industry met to discuss the challenges of plastics in the environment with leading organisations such as Ocean Conservancy, Fraunhofer Umsicht, Plastics Europe and Zero Waste Europe.
