Kristin Hughes has spent the majority of her career working at the intersection of business and government, forging partnerships and engaging in sustainability and development activities. She joined the World Economic Forum specifically to head up the newly created Global Plastic Action Partnership (GPAP), an ambitious public-private platform that translates commitments to address plastic pollution into tangible action. We believe that it is possible to end plastic pollution from source to sea by 2025 focusing on systems change and utilizing circular economy solution. We are bringing together change-makers from every walk of life to achieve this shared goal.
