Plastics Europe reiterates its strong support for the overarching objective of Resolution 5/14: namely, to end plastic pollution by 2040 through a circular economy.
Our goal is to end plastic pollution by 2040 through a circular economy where all plastic applications are reused, recycled, and responsibly managed during and after use while enabling a lower greenhouse gas emissions plastic economy.
We support an international agreement including ambitious measures and an enabling framework to facilitate this global transformation of the plastics system. We consider the suggested obligations below as key drivers to enable circularity and end plastic pollution in shortest period possible, while ensuring the protection of human health and the environment.
