Carbon Tracker is hosting this webinar as part of Climate Week NYC 2020.

The oil sector believes and is putting substantial amounts of money into the idea, that growth in plastics will enable it to prosper as we move to a world powered by low carbon energy. Is this true? If not, what does it mean for companies and investors?

Plastic demand is forecast to be a key driver of rising oil demand. However, plastic demand growth is unlikely to materialise as the result of higher regulatory pressure and more recycling, which will mean no demand growth for virgin plastic. This removes the last key pillar of oil demand growth.

To help investors better understand this situation, Carbon Tracker latest report The Future’s Not in Plastics which explores petrochemicals and plastic demand.

Speakers include:

  • Kingsmill Bond, Energy Strategist, Carbon Tracker
  • Yoni Shiran, Breaking the Plastic Wave Program Director, SYSTEMIQ

Moderator: Tim McDonnell, Climate and Energy Reporter, Quartz

This webinar will include a Q&A with the audience.
