Bringing all sides of the ocean plastics crisis to the table.

Introducing the Global Treaty Dialogues

In February 2022 The United Nations Environment Assembly will decide whether to move forward with a “Paris Agreement for Plastics.” Leading up to this decision, our Global Treaty Dialogues aim to map the positions and concerns of thousands of stakeholders across the plastics ecosystem, and accelerate solutions to address the oceans plastics crisis.

Together with Greenpeace and World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the Ocean Plastic Leadership Network will be holding a series of candid conversations throughout 2021 designed to forge a deeper, collective understanding between all parties dedicated to this crisis.
