Emily Tipaldo, Executive Director, U.S. Plastics Pact

Emily joins the U.S. Plastics Pact with more than a decade of experience with plastics, recycling, and materials management. The potential through value chain collaboration to improve our climate and more responsibly use materials motivates her every day.
