Towards a global ban on plastic pollution

This week the British government and international counterparts started talks on shaping a legally-binding global treaty that aims to end plastic pollution by 2040, fulfilling this generation's responsibility to that of our children, grandchildren and to future generations on the environment.

  • Plastic pollution has a direct and deadly effect on our wildlife, our oceans, and on the whole planet.
  • That is why the British government has initiated talks with businesses, environmental groups, scientists and civil society on shaping a legally-binding global treaty that aims to end marine plastic pollution by 2040, taking a vital further step in our plan to protect our environment.
  • Protecting our environment for future generations is vital and must complement our commitments to tackle climate change, including seeking to achieve net zero in the UK by 2050.
