GLOBAL PLASTICS TREATY (INC-2) (29 May to 2 June 2023)

Reject False Solutions & Ineffective Techno-Fixes

For the Global #PlasticsTreaty to be effective, the treaty must include legally binding, time-bound, and ambitious targets to scale up reuse, refill, and alternative product delivery systems to accelerate the transition away from single-use plastics.

Correspondingly, the treaty must reject false solutions, regrettable substitutes, and ineffective techno-fixes such as incineration, chemical “recycling”, waste-to-energy, co-processing in cement kilns, international waste dumping, and other schemes which perpetuate business as usual and support continued plastic production to the further detriment of the climate, human and environmental health.
