Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, Bangkok - 2 DaysWednesday
Working towards a robust UN plastics treaty
Join the largest gathering of delegates before INC-3 at a forum for multi-stakeholders to work collaboratively towards a robust UN plastics treaty.
The first Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC1) in 2022 for a UN global treaty to end plastic pollution was constructive but revealed ongoing opportunity gaps in an aspiring whole-of-life cycle plastics agreement. What happens off the negotiating table, as much as on, will determine the success of the treaty.
An independent global forum under the Economist Impact banner, Global Plastics Summit 2023 has been curated to build and sustain momentum for the UN plastics treaty, critically take stock of progress at the half-way stage, and offer a platform for diverse voices to be heard in pursuit of an ambitious treaty. Join the conversation in Bangkok on October 11th and 12th to create the most progressive plastics treaty possible.

In 2022, the U.S. experienced 18 separate climate disasters, each costing more than $1 billion in damages. This tally greatly underestimates the true cost of climate change – and its impact on workers. In a new study, the national nonprofit Commonwealth is examining the impact of climate change on workers, their financial security, and, ultimately, the places they work.
Companies have become increasingly cognizant of their impact on climate change in the environment in recent years, but a new area of study is the impact of climate change on workers – and its implications for worker productivity, employers’ bottom lines, and employees’ financial security.
Join us on Wednesday, October 11, 2023, at 3:00 p.m. ET to better understand the impact of extreme and unusual weather on workers living on low and moderate incomes – and, in particular, the impact on their financial situations.
In this conversation, our friends at Commonwealth will bring together experts for a first look at this original, new research about the realities of how climate change is currently and will continue to affect workers’ health, well-being, and living situations and host a robust discussion on what actions employers, policymakers, and financial institutions can take to mitigate this impact.
Time: 3:00 PM ET
