A Global Commitment

In March 2011, leaders from plastics associations around the world developed and signed The Declaration of the Global Plastics Associations for Solutions on Marine Litter. As of January 2017 a total of 69 plastic associations in 35 countries have voluntarily signed the Declaration. 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.

Our Progress Report provides an update on projects carried out under The Declaration. Please download the 2016 Progress Report Executive Summary for highlights.
