The global production and use of plastics are expected to increase fourfold to 2050 and if the material is poorly managed at the end-of-life, this will potentially result in significantly increased impacts on the environment, especially through marine plastic litter. How can this scenario be avoided, why are current recycling rates for plastics so low and what can be done to improve them? On 23 January, 2019, Peter Börkey of the OECD Environment Directorate addressed this pressing issue and the policy responses that are required to tackle it.
