The objective of the survey for the plastics industry was to determine the role of sustainability in the plastics industry. We also wanted to determine the level of understanding of the concept of sustainability and the degree of commitment that this industry had to sustainability. Is it a passing trend or would it have a substantial impact on the industry and company strategy? In addition, the relation between company size as measured by its revenue and sustainability spending in plastics industry was investigated. It is logical and sensible to think that the bigger the company, the more they are likely to spend on sustainability. This study examines the hypothesis and uses statistical analysis to determine if this is actually true, at least in the plastics industry.
