Negotiations are underway for a UN Global Treaty to End Plastic Pollution (INC-3), World Wildlife Fund (WWF) issued the following statement from Erin Simon, Vice President & Head of Plastic Waste & Business about disruptions to the INC-3 proceedings from low-ambition countries:

“At the close of day one of negotiations, bad faith actors are not only threatening the integrity of the UN process, they are also putting the environmental and human health of communities around the world at risk.

“We can’t allow the voices of a few to diminish the aspirations of the many, who have been working to lock in the text for an effective treaty. The building blocks to construct a once-in-a-generation outcome for people and the planet are still in place, but Member States must bring their highest level of political will to the table and stand for nothing short of a legally binding treaty that creates a future free from plastic pollution.”
