How a simple solution could fight an ocean of waste – and more

In the July 2017 issue of Quality Quarterly we dive into the ocean to see why quality is so important for plastics, and we take a look at how our gas networks might be used following the energy transition. Through in-depth interviews with architect Thomas Rau and Kiwa’s partners from award-winning chocolate producer Pacari, we explore different aspects of sustainability and look at the role of certification. How can corporate social responsibility help build trust and show progress?
