Plastic Production: Latest Views from Scientists and the Public

April 16 , 7:00 am 8:00 am EDT

This event, co-organized with Greenpeace, within the framework of the Geneva Beat Plastic Pollution Dialogues, stresses the importance of globally-binding obligations to reduce plastic production.

Many expert studies continue to be carried out by different bodies to highlight the need for the reduction of plastic production, with a particular focus on the greenhouse gas emissions from plastic production as a clear metric to show that we need to reduce production volumes.

In preparation for the next round of negotiations on a legally-binding instrument on plastic pollution, to take place in Ottawa, Canada in April, this event will stress the importance of globally-binding obligations to reduce plastic production.

At this event, Greenpeace will present its newly commissioned global public opinion polling in 19 countries about supporting a strong and ambitious Global Plastics Treaty (GPT) focusing on key questions, including reducing plastic production in line with 1.5°. Other experts  presented other perspectives and data on why production reduction is important, including biodiversity and human health impacts.
