In this newly created role, Duer will advance the alliance mission to develop, deploy, and bring to scale solutions that will minimise and manage plastic waste and promote solutions for used plastics. This includes plastic reuse, recovery, and recycling to keep it out of the environment.  Since launching in January, the alliance has initiated projects focused on: river renewal; municipal and city partnerships; idea incubation; and IT infrastructure. In total, the alliance has committed to a goal of $1.5bn to deliver sustainable solutions over five years.
