Business Call for a UN Treaty on Plastic Pollution
PACE Partners World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Procter & Gamble, the Coca-Cola Company and Unilver are contributing to the following Calls to Action from the Circular Economy Action Agenda for Plastics
1. Agree which plastics can be eliminated and prepare the market to phase them out
The Business Call for a UN Treaty on Plastic Pollution is open call from leading businesses across the world encouraging UN member states to agree to start negotiating a binding global agreement on plastic pollution at the UNEA 5.2. By harmonising regulatory standards, mandating the development of national targets and action plans, defining common metrics and methodologies, and supporting innovation and infrastructure development, a UN treaty on plastic pollution would be able to help drive the transition to a circular economy for plastic at speed and scale. WWF, the Boston Consulting Group and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation played a founding role in setting up the Business Call through their publication of the Business Case for a UN Treaty on Plastic Pollution report.
Objectives for 2021
In 2021, the focus will be on increasing signatories to the business call by including leading businesses across the plastics value chain.
