The Plastic Lifecycle

Participation by invitation only

Plastics, while being integral to society, have reached unsustainable levels of production and consumption, necessitating global action. In March 2022, the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) adopted a landmark resolution mandating the establishment of an Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC) to develop a legally binding instrument for combatting plastic pollution. 

In April this year, the fourth meeting of the INC concluded in Ottawa (Canada) with an agreement to work towards setting up criteria and non-criteria for plastic products, chemicals of concern, recyclability and reusability. With only one final session of the INC remaining, it is imperative that the negotiations pick up pace and the world gears up to tackle this menace in right earnest. 

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), which has been monitoring the negotiations very closely since they began, is organising a national consultation of stakeholders involved in the complete plastic lifecycle. The workshop aims to establish a shared understanding of the issue of plastic pollution by harmonising the interests of industry with the expectations of waste-pickers, and every stakeholder in between. 

CSE will be supporting the travel and stay of all participants.
