A Critical Moment in Time | Our Q1 News Roundup
April 04, 2023

We are at a critical moment in time. The world is facing a triple planetary crisis of climate change, nature loss and pollution. Waste is at the nexus of all of these issues, but is often ignored.

Meanwhile, the momentum for positive change is building. We are seeing renewed commitments and increased action across a spectrum of sustainability challenges and opportunities from major companies, governments, investors and consumers around the world.

As we enter our second year as Delterra, we are encouraged to see the real-world impacts of this momentum, both on the ground through our programs and in increased support from organizations partnering with us and funding this critical work.

Momentum on the ground
In our first full year as Delterra we delivered on our agenda of building for growth, thanks to which we are now poised to scale our impact:

  • We are now bringing Rethinking Recycling to a second cohort of cities in Argentina, aiming to reach 20% of the Argentine population by the end of this year.
  • In Indonesia, we are implementing an integrated waste management model to bring an environmentally, economically and socially sustainable system to Bali’s Badung regency.
  • We have captured and distilled our learnings to date, which we are excited to share in an open-source framework for circular waste management.
  • With Plastic IQ, we are investing in upstream innovation, launching three integrated tools to help companies in Brazil and Indonesia better understand and improve the impact of their plastics packaging portfolios.

Momentum in our partnerships
We look forward to announcing new strategic partners, including major brands, in May as part of our participation in the second session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee as we all work side by side to develop an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution. If you or your colleagues are planning to be at INC-2, please connect with us!

The support of our partners makes the impact we’re driving possible. We are grateful to all the individuals and organizations joining us on this journey and we look forward to continuing to work together to drive real change, at scale.
