An Important Step Forward in Global Plastic Pollution Control

Plastic pollution is one of the most serious international environmental problems in the world today, and like other global environmental problems such as climate change, water pollution and water shortage, land degradation and Desertification, to effectively solve the problem of Plastic pollution, in fact, is beyond the capacity of any country, region or department, and must require extensive cooperation from the international community.


Recently, the process of global cooperation in tackling Plastic pollution has finally taken a big step forward.




On June 5, the 50th World Environment Day, this year's theme is "Plastic pollution solutions". On the same day, UN Secretary General Guterres called for global action to break the dependence on plastic to end Plastic pollution at the UN headquarters in New York.


Just a few days ago (June 2), more than 1600 representatives from more than 160 countries and more than 300 observer organizations reached a consensus at the United Nations conference held in Paris, France. The first draft of a treaty on global governance of Plastic pollution is scheduled to be completed in November this year and submitted to the next meeting to be held in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya for discussion. This is considered to be an important progress of the international community in formulating a legally binding treaty to control Plastic pollution.


Last March, 175 countries approved and signed the landmark resolution "Resolution on Ending Plastic pollution (Draft)", and agreed to form a legally binding international agreement on this by 2024. From the end of November to the beginning of December last year, the first intergovernmental negotiation of the United Nations on global governance of Plastic pollution was held in Uruguay, and the just concluded Paris Conference was the second intergovernmental negotiation.


After the Paris Conference, some media analyzed that, although a series of negotiation results reached by the international community marked that coordinated governance of Plastic pollution has become a global consensus, there are still some major differences between the parties on specific treaty contents, including whether to set a ceiling on plastic production capacity, whether to reduce the production capacity of "problematic plastics", and whether to set the goal of Plastic pollution governance by international treaties or by countries themselves.




On the World Environment Day, UN Secretary General Guterres said via video that the world produces more than 400 million tons of plastic every year, one third of which is used only once; Every day is equivalent to 2000 Garbage truck full of plastic dumping plastic into rivers, lakes and seas. The consequences of this are catastrophic. In food, water and air, Microplastics are everywhere. In addition, since plastic is a fossil fuel product, the more plastic is produced, the more fossil fuels are needed, and the Climate crisis is getting worse.


The various stages of the 'plastic cycle' pose risks to people's living environment, life, health, food, and water. The production of plastics relies almost entirely on fossil fuels, which release harmful substances during the process. Plastic itself contains toxic chemicals, posing a risk to humans and nature.


85% of the waste plastics will eventually be buried or dumped into the environment. Incineration, recycling and other "false and misleading solutions" will also increase the threat. Plastics, Microplastics and the harmful substances contained in them will appear in the food we eat, water we drink and the air we breathe. Plastic particles found in the sea limit the marine ecosystem's ability to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere
