Melbourne — Covestro US Head of Sustainability and CSR Rebecca Lucore will address a keynote speech and a panel discussion with SV, APCO, Dow Chemical and  One Planet at the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) Conference, next Thursday, Nov. 15, in Melbourne.

The Conference on “The Future of Plastics and the Circular Economy” is aiming at making a contribution by presenting actions, solutions and supporting technology from elsewhere in the World (and locally) which could assist Australian society in its collaborative effort.

During her keynote presentation, titled “Pushing Boundaries, Fresh Perspectives on the Circular Economy:  How Covestro is Using Carbon and People to Drive Sustainability” Rebecca Lucore will draw connections between Covestro’s company sustainable initiatives and her own professional journey, as she works with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) to bring the UNSDGs to Covestro’s U.S. site communities.

Rebecca Lucore will also share her insights regarding US perspectives on plastics and her innovative way to think about circular economy.

Organized by the Australia-New Zealand Section of the Society of Plastics Engineers, the Annual Conference on Plastics and Waste is one day of keynotes and panel discussions gathering SPE members and industry professionals to find and implement solutions. This year’s conference will be held at Pullman on the Park Hotel, in Melbourne.
