Strategies towards reaching zero plastic pollution
The role of collective action and an international agreement
Ahead of the second Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to develop a Global Plastics Treaty (INC2), the Global Partners for Plastics Circularity are organising an online briefing with the Financial Times to discuss “Strategies towards reaching zero plastic pollution – The role of collective action and international agreement a global agreement can help eliminate plastic pollution”.
Plastic pollution is an accelerating global problem. An estimated 11 million metric tons of plastic enters the ocean every year, making up over 85% of total marine waste. This devastates ecosystems and impacts livelihoods. The global community needs to tackle this issue, and is taking steps to do so through the development of an international treaty on plastic pollution.
Join the Financial Times online briefing to explore how plastic pollution has become so prevalent, what is needed to overcome this issue and the role that an international agreement could play.
The webinar is free of charge.
