Circular Economy for International Opportunities | GC Insights Joins Covestro Submit 2023

On April 19, 2023, GC Insights joined the leading supplier of premium polymers, Covestro among experts and business leaders in the circular material industry to promote this year’s forum for “Covestro’s International Green Opportunities Submit 2023”. GC Insights has shared valuable ideas and market insights in circular materials’ applications, supply chain green premium management, and the business case for renewable materials in the circular economy. As recycled low-carbon sourcing has grown to be a competitive factor for Chinese enterprises to challenge the ever-changing international markets and evolving global sustainable development needs.

- The Plastic Waste Challenge -

For over a century, plastics have revolutionized the world. They have helped to improve lives, hygiene, and nutritional conditions. At the same time, plastic waste has become a global environmental challenge. With more than 40% of plastics being used only once, it is estimated that an average of 8 million tons of plastic pollution enters oceans each year.

“Plastic in the environment is now ranking at the same level in terms of political and societal importance as issues like climate change and biodiversity loss.” -- Jacob Duer (President and CEO – Alliance to End Plastic Waste)

- Promoting Circular Economy -

To inspire innovation while promoting the circular economy, GC Insights collaborated with guests attending the summit to discuss the critical role of recycled materials in promoting sustainable innovation, analyzing the market demands for recycled materials, and how recycled materials can drive business value for enterprises.

GC Insights shared a number of paths and applicable scenarios for achieving green premium enhancement through sourcing and the management of recycled materials. The most popular options are through the application and promotion of green labels, such as Amazon's Climate Pledge Friendly initiatives, EU Eco-labels, Blue Angel, Nordic Swan, and product carbon labels such as Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), etc. These labels provide businesses with competitive advantages such as green product labeling, annotation of the proportion and source of renewable materials used in products, as well as increased recognition and sales surge among consumers in different markets around the world.

Covestro is among the leading suppliers of premium polymers. Their materials and application solutions are found in nearly every area of modern life. Innovation and sustainability are the driving forces behind the continuous development of Covestro’s products, processes, and facilities.

We are looking forward to seeing more innovative solutions among recycled materials for the circular economy.
