December Webinar 2022: Micro pollution and microplastics
According to United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), microplastics have widely been found to be present throughout the world’s marine environment. Increased research about their potential secondary health impacts for animals and humans as well as toxic effects on biological organisms including mammals has raised awareness about the need for collective action to reduce microplastics emissions.
Our expert speakers shed a light on how investors and asset owners can get involved in managing microplastics and what can be done to reduce the presence of these health hazards in our oceans and lakes.
