Daniele Ferrari paid tribute to his predecessor, praising his efficient and effective chairmanship, and for his instrumental support in developing the World Plastics Council, a platform that brings together strong, committed plastics industry leaders from around the world to address the complex global issues faced by the plastics industry.   

“I am very excited to take on this new responsibility and to continue the path Patrick Thomas has established in these past six years. Our industry needs to further develop partnerships based on a constructive and solution-oriented approach” said Daniele Ferrari “If we are serious about creating solutions for the world’s challenges, we need an open-minded industry that acts together with NGOs, the value chain and general public because we do and we will need plastics to be part of the solution”.
