Global Plastics Treaty Now!
From beaches in Southeast Asia to the remote Antarctic, plastic pollution is everywhere. It is harming animals like turtles and seabirds, affecting human health, and is a significant driver of the climate crisis. But change is coming.
Governments are negotiating a Global Plastics Treaty - meaning we have the chance to push for it to be as strong and impactful as possible. A strong treaty has a huge potential to put the world on a path towards a plastic-free future, but it will be up to us to make sure that it delivers on its promises.
Sign the petition to call on Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek to support a STRONG Global Plastics Treaty.
The second round of UN negotiations (UNC2 - Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee negotiations) for a Global Plastics Treaty are happening on the 29th of May 2023 in Paris.

Petition | Global Plastics Treaty
A strong plastics treaty will help deliver a clean, safe planet for all
We demand an ambitious global plastics treaty that will:
|Limit the production of plastic to 2017 levels. Followed by annual reductions in the production of plastic.
|Limit the use of plastic by focusing efforts on reuse and refill models.
Require full transparency on all plastics produced, used, imported and exported.
|Make producers responsible for the full environmental and social costs of plastic pollution during its entire lifecycle.
|Introduce a financial mechanism to ensure funding to meet the challenges of solving the plastic pollution crisis.
|Ensure indigenous peoples, frontline communities and other affected workers have a voice in designing a just transition to a reuse economy.
