8. Support public policies to improve solid waste management and recycling chain, especially of plastic waste.
According to data from the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA), 25 million tons of waste enter the oceans each year, throwing marine ecosystems off-balance. Around 80% of this volume is due to poor management of solid waste in cities and, according to estimates, half of this waste is plastic. To contain this situation, we know that proper plastic disposal and recycling are viable solutions with social, economic and environmental impacts. Braskem closely monitors this topic and, through a series of actions catalyzed by our positioning on the circular economy, will spare no efforts to make a positive difference and actively collaborate to reverse this scenario.
