Leadership on tackling plastic pollution got a boost at the UN Ocean Conference when twenty-one 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 United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Global Commitment brings together stakeholders across the plastics value chain to drive the transition towards a circular economy for plastic, where plastic never becomes waste. All business and government signatories set ambitious actions and 2025 targets across the life cycle to address plastic pollution and report annually on progress.
