Cynthia Villar said: “As a public official, I get invitations to attend events and to visit cities or projects abroad.

Cynthia Villar said: “In the last four years, since the law was passed, there has been a huge increase in farm tourism destinations all over the country.

Cynthia Villar cited: “We have to work harder because we cannot even meet our local consumption requirement of 50,000 metric tons. Local supply is only about 12,000 metric tons. Why do we still import cacao and cacao products to serve the local demand? When in fact we are in the best position to fill the supply gap in the world cacao market, because we are a coconut producing country and cacao is intercropping to coconut” External link

We can adopt the best practices of others and recalibrate them for our own requirements or circumstances. That is a winning strategy of many successful leaders and businesses, so we can do the same in developing our country’s agriculture. We have all the natural resources, we just have to better utilize them to fulfil our people’s needs and aspirations,” External link

Jacob Duer declarou: "Temos que agir com urgência, pois a falta de ação resultará em milhões de toneladas de resíduos plásticos, continuando a vazar para o oceano se não fizermos nada hoje. O progresso que a Aliança está fazendo em apenas 18 meses é o começo de uma longa estrada pela frente. Mas podemos diminuir essa estrada significativamente quando agirmos em conjunto com a indústria, governos, sociedade civil e agências de desenvolvimento. O problema é solucionável, e nossa estratégia deve aplicar uma abordagem holística sustentada por profundo conhecimento técnico e recursos de toda a cadeia de valor do plástico" External link

A Aliança está demonstrando como as soluções bem-sucedidas de gestão de resíduos plásticos podem liberar capital para escalar e acelerar o ritmo" External link

Thorsten Leopold erläutert: „Unsere Vernel-Flaschen bestehen aus 100 Prozent recyceltem und recycelbarem PET und sind von einer abtrennbaren Hülle aus einem anderen Material umgeben.
