L’Oréal Australia has called on consumers and industry to take critical action on climate change at the Respecting our Planetary Boundaries panel discussion this week.

The panel was hosted by writer, broadcaster and War on Waste presenter Craig Reucassel and brought together experts from government, FMCG and advocacy groups, to discuss the climate crisis.

The ongoing global pandemic has worsened the plastic pollution globally with the increased use of face masks, plastic packaging and other disposable materials.

The panel included former foreign minister and chancellor of ANU, Julie Bishop; science communicator and presenter Laura Wells; Sipp Instant founders, Dylan Garft and Luke Zocchi and Natixis Investment Managers managing director, Louise Watson.

The speakers discussed the impact that global warming, depleting biodiversity, access to clean water and bad air quality are having on the planet.

The live-streamed event emphasised the importance of sustainable innovations, ethical labor practices and social media as a tool to spread awareness.
