Global Plastics Summit

The first Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC1) in 2022 for a UN global treaty to end plastic pollution was constructive but revealed ongoing opportunity gaps in an aspiring whole-of-life cycle plastics agreement. What happens off the negotiating table, as much as on, will determine the success of the treaty.

Global Plastics Summit provides an independent platform for treaty participants to address key issues ahead of the anticipated treaty first draft, facilitating discussion across the entire ecosystem—from negotiators to businesses, health experts and scientists, NGOs, waste-pickers, investors, finance sector, waste recyclers and policy-makers.

Join the largest gathering of delegates before INC-3 at a forum for multi-stakeholders to work collaboratively towards a robust UN plastics treaty.
