High Ambition Coalition to End Plastic Pollution: Road map to end plastic pollution by 2040

How will an international, legally binding treaty enable the circular economy for plastics to protect the environment and human health?

Plastics is often designed to become waste, and too much plastics have adverse effects on the environment and pose a risk to human health. The High Ambition Coalition to End Plastic Pollution is a group of like-minded countries committed to develop an international, legally binding instrument to end plastic pollution. This plastics treaty must ensure criteria and standards for design of plastics to ensure durability, recyclability and safety, enabling a circular economy for plastics that protects the environment and human health.

This session will offer information about the coalition and its targets and objectives. It will also be an opportunity to have a clear image on plastics and our needed collective effort to promote the circular economy by improving plastic recyclability.

The event is perfect for high officials, government representatives and policymakers, business leaders, working-level practitioners and the interested public.
