Whitehouse Communications is excited to bring to you a joint Nappy Alliance and United Nations Environment Programme webinar on “Single-use nappies and their alternatives: recommendations for policymakers from Life Cycle Assessments”, taking place online on Wednesday 23rd June at 12pm CEST.
The Nappy Alliance is a coalition of independent providers of reusable nappies which exists to promote the benefits of reusable nappies and greater choice for parents.
In March 2021, the United Nations Environment Programme’s Life Cycle Initiative published a review of Life Cycle Assessments of single-use nappies and their alternatives. As the report highlights, “single-use nappies are one of the biggest contributors to plastic waste globally, with around 250 million thrown away every day. They have environmental impacts across their entire lifecycle and are also a leading cost for local authorities tasked with their disposal.”
Together with the United Nations Environment Programme and its Life Cycle Initiative, the Nappy Alliance is hosting a webinar to outline the background, methodology and findings of the report, as well as the implications and recommendations for policymakers.
The discussion will be chaired by Guy Schanschieff MBE, Chair of the Nappy Alliance. It will be followed by a Q&A session, giving you the chance to put your questions to our panel of experts from across the globe.
The panellists are:
- Claudia Giacovelli, Programme Officer, UN Environment Programme, Life Cycle Team
- Philippa Notten, Director, TGH Think Space and Adjunct Professor at the University of Cape Town
- Ralph Regenvanu, Leader of the Opposition, Republic of Vanuatu
- Larissa Copello de Souza, Consumption and Production Campaigner, Zero Waste Europe
- Bettina Susanne Hoffman, Assistant Professor, Technology Management and Innovation, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro
