A historic resolution on plastic pollution is adopted at UNEA 5.2.

Leadership on tackling plastic pollution got a boost at the UN Ocean Conference when 21 new governments announced they will join the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment.

Established in 2018 and led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, in collaboration with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), the Global Commitment brings together stakeholders across the plastics value chain to drive the transition towards a circular economy for plastic.

All business and government signatories set ambitious actions and targets across the lifecycle to address plastic pollution and report annually on progress.
