World Plastics Council’s First General Assembly

The first General Assembly of the World Plastics Council (WPC) was held in Dubai, UAE, to define key areas the Council will address. WPC is the global forum proposed in 2013 by the plastics industry to accelerate the cooperation and alignment at the international level and to deliver improved outcomes for the common benefit for society, consumers and the plastics industry. WPC represents the world plastics industry including Asia, the Middle East, North and South America, and Europe.

At the first General Assembly of the World Plastics Council Mosaed Al Ohali (first row, center) was elected as Chairman (figure: PlasticsEurope)

During this first General Assembly, Mosaed Al Ohali, current Executive Vice President Polymers of Sabic, was elected as the new Chairman of WPC replacing Patrick Thomas, CEO Bayer MaterialScience who had taken up the role during the formation phase of WPC.

Mosaed Al Ohali has extensive experience in the petrochemical industry. Prior to his current position, he was the Chief Operating Officer of the Sabic Europe group, including manufacturing and business and project management. He is also Chairman of the boards of the Saudi European Petrochemical Company (Ibn Zahr) and the Jubail United Petrochemical Company (United).

This first General Assembly provided strategic direction on key areas of the sustainability agenda. As initial top priorities, WPC’s work will focus on marine debris and post-consumer use solutions (recycling and energy recovery).
