We are so happy that the United Nations agreed on a Plastic Pollution Treaty at the 1st of March 2022. The United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi agreed to end plastic pollution and forge an international legally binding agreement by 2024.
- Heads of State, Ministers of environment and other representatives from 175 nations endorsed this landmark agreement that addresses the full lifecycle of plastic from source to sea to develop a treaty designed to bring an end to the scourge of plastic pollution.
- The resolution, which addresses the full lifecycle of plastic, including production, design and disposal, will be developed over the next two years.
- Inger Andersen, Executive Director of the U.N. Environment Programme (UNEP), described the breakthrough as “a triumph by planet earth over single-use plastics.” And said the agreement is the most important international multilateral environmental deal since the Paris climate accord.
