WWF Statement on New Report from the Nordic Council of Ministers: Towards Ending Plastic Pollution by 2040

Today, the Nordic Council of Ministers released a new report: Towards Ending Plastic Pollution by 2040 – 15 Global Policy Interventions for Systems Change. In Response, WWF issued the following statement from Erin Simon, Vice President and Head of Plastic Waste and Business:

“As we move through the process towards securing a global treaty to end plastic pollution, negotiators must use all available science to inform the policy decisions that will ultimately determine the strength of this treaty.

“The current “Zero Draft” of the treaty outlines a range of interventions, some move us closer to ending plastic pollution and others don’t go far enough. When negotiators arrive in Nairobi this November for INC3, leaning into evidence-based decision making will help get us to the outcome our planet needs.”
