Report: UN Roadmap Outlines Solutions to Cut Global Plastic Pollution Ahead of World Environment Day

Plastic pollution could reduce by 80 per cent by 2040 if countries and companies make deep policy and market shifts using existing technologies, according to a new report by UN Environment Programme (UNEP).

The report is released ahead of World Environment Day on the 5th June and a second round of negotiations in Paris on a global agreement to beat plastic pollution, and outlines the magnitude and nature of the changes required to end plastic pollution and create a circular economy.
