Action on Marine Litter

Global Plastics Associations take action on marine litter
The European plastics industry has been instrumental in bringing together 47 plastics industry organisations from around the world to sign up to a "Joint Declaration for Solutions on Marine Litter”, which was announced at the 5th International Marine Debris Conference in Hawaii on 22 March 2011.

The Declaration outlines a set of clear objectives for industry action, and advocates close cooperation with a broad range of stakeholders to achieve substantial progress in reducing damage to the marine environment.

While acknowledging that the causes of marine litter are many and complex and the problem cannot be solved by one stakeholder group alone, the European plastics industry is determined to drive multi-stakeholder action on the issue both in Europe and at international level.
