Each year, approximately eight million tonnes of plastic packaging makes its way from retail and other industries into our oceans. Global plastics production is expected to double in the next decade. As a global community, we’ve only just begun to address some of the low-hanging fruit, such as microbeads. What’s next? This session focuses on four pillars of ocean plastics reduction - lifecycle design, waste management, mitigation and investment,and how business, government, and civil society are collaborating to tackle the issue.
