Plastic pollution in the nature is increasingly being recognized as a global problem, and one of the companies that are proving that a clean nature and successful business can go hand in hand is the global market leader in reverse vending, TOMRA. This year marks their 10th year anniversary in Japan, and a small celebration was held at the Norwegian Embassy under the facilitation of NCCJ on October 19th.
We at the Chamber are tremendously proud that technology from Norway is being used to tackle the issue of global plastic pollution, and we offer our heartfelt congratulations and best wishes for the years to come!
